Although I will be making every effort to back up all files regularly on a PC this might not always be possible in the event of an unexpected failure. Therefore, it might be a good idea to back up your own posts as well...
Your help in these matters will keep these pages functioning.
The CGI script that makes this forum work is written in perl. a "FREE", "open source" programming language written by Larry Wall and subject to the GNU General Public License agreement.
That is... like a Land Trust or a Community Garden... nobody can claim the language, or programs derived from it as entirely their own and as I understand it, should make them available to others. The CGI script for these forums is currently very much a work in progress.
As I learn more perl the Program will be growing and expanding with this forum as more people use it and more functions are needed. My programming knowledge and skills will have to grow and expand to meet the need... hopefully I can keep up! any suggestions, advice or programming assistance from anyone reading this would be greatly appreciated.
You can find the (almost) current working part of the script, such as it is, here: source code Feel free to use it at your own risk.
