First I've been waiting for an opportunity to mention this. If you haven't
noticed it, try out a demo on the right side of the edos web site front page
(http://www.edos.org). It reads as follows:
We Have a Demo of
Selena Sol's
Multiple Choice
Script Online
I thought this was an excellent way to present a demo.
Concerning Perl. No but once one knows a half dozen languages picking up
another one isn't that big a deal. Better yet I will get in touch with the
local Perl gurus. There is a local Perl Users Group I can access. I believe
they have a web site and mailing list. It may take a day or two but I will
check it out. There is some incredible talent out here and once we can show
that we're really doing something, I believe we can tap into it.
