Dynamic Pages & Dynamic Links

Hi All

I'm looking for a routine that will create dynamic pages & dynamic links at the bottom of a page. Say I had a have a database with One-hundred links in it I would like it to print 10 links on 10 pages just like most search engines do. I'm looking to do this without the use of any modules.

Assuming that you have a webpage setup which has page numbers a s links, and on clicking one of those links, calls this script with 'pagenumber' as the parameter containing the pagenumber,

my $pagenum = param('pagenumber') ;
local @ARGV=('/path/to/databasefile') ;
my @entries = <> ;
print @entries[(10*$pagenum-1)..(10*$pagenum+9)] ;

Suppposing if u r using mysql, a query like the following would give the results in tens:

$query="SELECT * FROM mytable LIMIT $from_counter, 10";

You can pass the value of $from_counter through GET/POST method.

Ok... You said supposing there are 100 links in ur text database, it should be shown as 10 pages with 10 links in each page. How do u want the result? Do u want them in 10 different text files? or Do u want them in a web page in which one page will be shown after other?... Basically if u explain what u r trying to do, it will be helpful.

you can hardcode them into the HTML.
Link for "page 1" should set pagenumber=0 and call this script.
Link for "page 2" should set pagenumber=1 and call this script.
