 Build a Perl/CGI voting system

Many Web-deployed applications are written within elaborate database-driven server-side development frameworks such as PHP and Java servlets, but for simple applications (for example, where the entire dataset fits comfortably within a Web server's RAM), data persistence can be easily accomplished using locked DBM files in conjunction with the Perl MLDBM module. This article presents a real-world example -- a Web-based voting application -- that highlights the use of minimal external modules, forgoes using client-based cookies, and takes advantage of CGI attributes.
