This is a simple guestbook CGI script written in perl. It stores entries in a flat text file and dynamically generates the pages (unlike another common guestbook) so it can be quite flexible.

I am currently rewriting bits to make sure that it works with mod_perl, and to provide a more flexible data mechanism (that could support the current plain text file, dbm files, and SQL databases, for example). Hopefully this should be released in the summer of 2002, after Finals are out of the way and I have a chance to do all the other things I've been meaning to.
