Perl Site Tools

The site tools package has classes to support a standard look and feel through templates that support somewhat advanced functionality like object method binding, custom escape/formatting functions, and basic looping and conditionals. It also supports SQL forms with foreign key handling with drop boxes or lists, and multiple field types like checkboxes, text boxes, and text areas. Add/delete/edit functionality is handled by the Form class. Tables can be created in the same way, and support auto-sorting by using hyperlinked headers, and next/prev handling. Both forms and tables can be bound to templates to adjust the look and feel or layout, without losing any functionality.

    Release Notes: Many feature enhancements were made. Lots more configuration options were added to the SQLTable. The SQLTable also knows about asc/desc sorting and allows both for any bound column name. SQLForm has been cleaned up and some utility functions were added. A new class, CrashNotify, was added to allow an easy and quick way to hook the die signal to send an email to you when a script crashes. The notification email includes all the options passed from the browser, the environment, and the actual error message. Some docmentation has been updated.
