Danny and Donna are getting married

"Can I write a very quick Perl script to run a wedding list, where items are marked off as bought once someone has put their name against them?". So wrote Danny, hoping to get his online friends to fund large parts of his round the world trip ...

My normal reaction would be to say "look, Danny - if you don't know Perl, that's going to be a lot of work unless you're planning to get married many times and keep re-using the same script". But then I thought - perhaps it COULD be done as a short demo.

Have a look at the page I came up with which includes all the program and HTML elements in a single page - it's the basis for Danny's application. You'll find the source code is available too - please feel free to take this and modify it to deal with other applications ("who will bring what drink to the party").

Remember, though - it's just a basis. My test code needs "crisping up" a bit - and you would want to add in some emailing capabilities too. I expect you would also want to remove the bit that resets the application to offer everything all over again when the list is complete - but then that's a feature that makes it into an excellent little learning demo!
