Creating and Searching a Database in PERL
Posted on 1997-09-30
I wish to create a database and then be able to search it from a web browser.
I have a list of navigational charts which are currently laid out in 4 columns.
1st col = chart CD # (1 to 11)
2nd col = chart #
3rd col = chart scale
4th col = chart description
The fields are comma delimited and each record appears on one line.
All this information is in a text file and I want to scan the text file and create my database. I need to then be able to search the database for a chart number a chart scale or a chart description and return all matches by record.
So if I search for chart number 30 if will return the full record.
ie. cd, chart num, scale, description
if there is more than one match it will display all matches.
I know this is alot to ask hence the points are high.
