The following links include a number of books which have
been valuable resources during the development of CGIScripter.

been gleaned from this book and implemented into the Perl CGI scripts
in order to insure that the scripts are robust and secure.

series books by providing concise answers to a multitude of questions
regarding MySQL. This book has been instrumental in getting up to

provided helpful ideas for image manipulation via Perl CGI scripts
and recordset paging.
