Creating a mailing list using Perl

Very worth reading

Just right

I have been working through your excellent series of articles on Perl/CGI. They are the best on the web.

I think there may be an error in your article "creating a mailing list using Perl".

For removing names from the list, you suggest opening the file in >> mode.

I found that this did not allow me to read in the names into @emailfile
I had to open FILE in read mode, read in the names, close FILE.
Then open in >> mode. Truncate and do the regexp.
There is probably a more eleganyt way to do this, but it seems to work OK.

What do you think?

By the way -- willl you be doing any articles about using CGI with database files? I suppose this is the next step up from using simple text files with data in them.
