Greetings:

I looking to create a temporary online phone directory without the use of a database. I am currently looking for any scripts or tutorials that could help.  I was looking into php. I tried perl, but I am weak in that area an was getting errors.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are there any server side languages you have a grasp on?  

If you just need a static directory where you want people to search  but you don't have to worry about updating online, you can just upload any text file, csv file, xml, json, yml and use that with javascript.    

One way to go may be using datatables http://www.datatables.net/ but lots of other options.

If you need to be able to edit and add on the fly, then you need a server side language like php, asp.  You don't need a database like mysql, the file types I mentioned can be your database.
