Perl, PHP and Other Programs:

The following are links to various perl, PHP and other programs currently running on a small, desktop server. In general, these are for use by students, faculty and staff at QVCC and in the CTC system. There are several levels of examples in this list, including those that are currently functional, and those that are still not working quite right.

A Few Examples:
Calendars and Schedulers
Databases and Guestbooks
Postcard Programs
Bulletin Board Scripts
Variety of Others

I refer to it here with this caution, but mainly as the source of at least one of the scripts above--as well as the source for information about the Sambar server, through which this "website" is now served.)


Web Sources:
  • Tod Sambar: Tod is the creator and developer of the Sambar Server software for Win95/98/NT. His site provides the latest version(s) of his freeware server, as well as links to online discussions, mailing lists etc. connected with its use.
  • Lincoln Stein: Author of the CGI.pm module; several of his key pages on the internet provide useful background resources (including the module itself); a number of pages are also linked as online resources for this books.
  • David Roth's Win32::ODBC Pages: David is the author of the Win32::ODBC module for perl, and his site makes it available, along with key documentation
  • Selena Sol: This site is a wealth of resources for learning about effective and practical perl-scripting. Numerous original scripts are found here, as well as links to other scripts. This site also has a variety of other resources for learning cgi/perl. It is UNIX oriented, but for those familiar with Win95/98/NT most scripts and information can be easily applied in their particular environment.
  • Matt's Script Archive: At the "Worldwidemart"... Key source (well indexed) for perl/cgi and other types of web scripts
  • Script Search: A page for searching for a wide range of perl/cgi and other types of web scripts
  • Philip Kallerman:...is the source for the "Dialogue Forums" conferencing software noted above.
  • John Watson's Perl Scripts: The chess program above, and a great perl tool for creating indexes for graphic files, can be found here. Well worth a look.
  • Kristina's Scripts for Educators: This is the source for the WebBMail script above, that is licensed for non-commercial/educational use. This site provides other useful scripts as well.
  • RCBowen This is the source for the HyperCal calendar script above. This site provides other useful scripts as well.
  • Alex Krohn ...is the source for the database manager script above, from Gossamer Threads. Apparently there is an SQL based version of this db manager, as well.
  • WebBBS This is the source for the Web Bulletin Board script above. This excellent site provides other useful scripts as well.
  • Peter Sundstrom ...is the source for the Slideshow script above. This script was slightly adapted from its original, to run in a Win32 environment. I am still "in progress" working on "details" for some other parts of the script, but as of 9/98 it is basically functioning well.
  • Ray Chan ...is the author of the Voting script above. This script was slightly adapted from its original, to customize its "look and feel". Meanwhile, during the late summer of 1998, Ray made some changes in parts of the script to improve its function. His "Perl Reunion 98" page is a good resource.
  • Dave Palmer ... the source for Links Sharing script above. This is a versatile script, and it would be well worth staying in touch with its developer's site.
  • StepWeb This is the source for the "autoresponder" script above. A basic, useful script, from a practical site, with other related resources.
  • Jann Linder's Calendar: Jann's calendar above is a modification of a program found previously at the Selena Sol's Archives
