    Choosing a JavaScript Framework

    I am trying to become a full-stack web-app developer. I have a few years experience with Java/Scala and the Play framework and lately some Node.js development. I am having trouble deciding what client-side framework to use. JQuery + Backbone.js or AngularJS. I have a little JQuery knowlege, and so does my team, and JQuery works really nicely with Backbone. But Angular has a large community and is well documentd and integrated with Express. What I want is something that has an easy learning curve, fits decently with CoffeeScript, and works well with both Play and Express. Any suggestions on which to use??

    Centering

    I know the tag is deprecated but is there an easy way to center items. for example take this code and "de-deprecate" <!DOCTYPE html><html><body> <center><p>Hello</p></center></body></html>

    problem with cgi files

    I accidently changed the default program to open cgi files to IE. now whenever I do a form action it treats the cgi like a download. is there a way I can fix this on windows 8 without doing a system restore

    No awnsers

    does anybody ever visit the ruby, pascal, or BASIC cgi forums. I have seen very few questions in these categories and am afraid my ruby question at http://w3schools.invisionzone.com/index.php?showtopic=46322 wont get answered. I might also start posting in pascal. so does anyone use these forums

    JavaScript escape function

    I was looking through one of my web dev books when I found a javascript function I just didn't get. it was used in a cookie that stored info about radio buttons chosen. the function is escape() and here is the line document.cookie="optFont=" +escape(fontChoice)+";expires="+expire.toUTCString(); can anyone tell me what this function does and some common uses

    Perl POST HTML Form

    I just want to know how to retrieve form data from perl and then write it to a file. I honestly don't care about the complexity. I'm not even planning to host any sites quite yet. I forgot to ask if my perl file could be kept as a .pl or do I have to compile it to a .cgi or somthing

    what js can do!

    I agree with Synook it probably can. what I like about vbscript is its OLE (object linking and embedding) for example you can make your computer talk with a SAPI.spvoice here's even the code for it talk.vbs dim msgdim sapiset sapi=CreateObject("SAPI.spvoice")msg=inputbox("enter a message")sapi.speak msg

    Ruby POST form

    This is the same exact question here in http://w3schools.invisionzone.com/index.php?showtopic=46321. I just want to know how to do it in ruby. I just want to know how to use POST to retrieve info form a textbox and write it to a file called info.txt. just so you don't have to run back and forth between pages here is the html: example.htm <!DOCTYPE html><html><head> <title>POST Example</title></head><body><form name="example" method="POST" action="TheRubyFile"> <input type="text" name="value" /> <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit It"/></form></body></html>

    Perl POST HTML Form

    Hello. I am beginning per for cgi scripting. I have been trying to find out how to do a simple form POST. I want it to take the info from a textbox and then write it to a file called info.txt. Every POST example I have found is too complicated. Please tell me if GET would be better suited for this. I just want someone to teach me how. Here is an example html file: example.htm <!DOCTYPE html><html><head> <title>POST Example</title></head><body><form name="example" method="POST" action="ThePerlFile"> <input type="text" name="value" /> <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit It"/></form></body></html>
