Project Description

I have a new project that requires a perl script modification.....

currently the script reads a flat csv file and returns results in a html table.... variables set in Lines 39-47

in this script I have it set to make 4 colums per row (line 40)
and each "result" is in a column cell, after each other... once it gets to the 5th result it makes a new row.... the 9th result a new row and so on...

works fine, but I need more flexibility... I have a customer who wants a vertical line between each result like in this example ([url removed, login to view])

so I need a need the script to modify how it writes the table.... I need variable that will insert an empty cell between the ones that show results and also set that cell with a background image of a rule line...

I want to have these settings controllable as variables so I can change the output as I see fit

I also want to have a horizontal rule in between the rows as well

I am not a programmer but this is how I imagine the variables looking (last 4 lines starts with "NEW---")

# Advanced Settings Columns
my $use_columns = 1;
my $columns = 4;
my $tableWidth ="1000";
my $tableBorder = 0;
my $tableCellpadding = 0;
my $tableCellspacing = 25;
my $tableStyle = "";
my $tableBorderColor = "";
my $tableBgColor = "";
NEW---my $use_ColumnDivider = 1; ( 1=yes 0=no)
NEW---my $ColumnDivider = ./[url removed, login to view]
NEW---my $use_RowDivider = 1; ( 1=yes 0=no)
NEW---my $RowDivider = ./[url removed, login to view]

don't know about the "real programming" that needs to be done in the script but I suspect it is somewhere around line 381
I have attached 2 scripts that i currently use that are very simular...
