New Features at electrician.com and electrician2.com

Welcome to my new Blog!
Now, for the first entry.
After several months of programming in PERL and CGI.PM I have built a new search utility and installed it at the main pages for electrician.com and the mirror site electrician2.com. . Many students taking courses have asked for (rightfully so) the ability to review test scores and other information. The new search utility uses the email addresses of users to find their passed tests and searches the file created from the new Notification of Completion Form to tell the users if they have submitted a Notification of Completion for a particular course. This search utility requires the same password and username as provided for taking the final or recorded tests. It is also server unique meaning that electrician.com results are not revealed at electrican2.com and vice versa. This search utility searches a total of 36 files and uses two new PERL scripts. I started writing these programs in September, 2005 and finished on November 2, 2005.There still may be some minor bugs, but it seems to work fine so far. (Test answers marked with an x are the wrong answers.)I have also started this Blog to update you on what is going on at electrician.com and report other interesting related tidbits.

First off, it's Perl (the language) or "perl" (the program), and never "PERL".

Second, I hope you've learned something in the five years since you posted your advice to everyone that Perl is a dangerous language.

One of the most common tools that electricians use is voltage indicators.
