Welcome to Alan's Technolinx

This Technical Links site was begun in 1995 as a reference site for students attending my webmaster seminars. It is updated regularly.
It contains a number of Technical Reference Links which could answer many of your questions about creating Websites using HTML, Graphics, CGI, Java & Javascript and Installing and Running a Professional Web Server.
A lot of the hottest new links are at my "CA97" Lecture Website, so don't miss that. It includes download links to all of the software I use in my lectures/classes - CA97 Resources
Please use these pages to find links to the content you'll
need to print your own Reference Manuals.
View the Menu, Click on the Notebook or ASK ME a question...
I'm always updating this list, so visit often, and kindly forgive me for any unfinished work you may stumble upon. Email me and I'll fill you in..

CGI / FORMS, Enhancements [ TOP ] [ MENU ] [ JAVA & JAVA Script ]


The quality that makes you go to great effort to reduce overall energy expenditure. It makes you write labour-saving programs that other people will find useful, and document what you wrote so you don't have to answer so many questions about it. Hence the first great virtue of a programmer."

Larry Wall [Programming Perl, Larry Wall and Randal. L. Schwartz, 1992 O'Reilly & Associates, Inc., page 426.]
