More on WebGUI

It looks like we are going to be using WebGUI after all. I have several misgivings about it but thankfully it is all written in Perl so if something bugs me that much I can probably do something about it.
I am not looking forward to migrating four sites onto it but hopefully after the first one has been migrated it will be a fairly straight forward process getting the other sites moved.
We also have several hundred CGI’s dotted all over the place that we are not really too keen on re-writing but its the glue. As part of the whole cleanup operation it would probably be prudent to visit them all and give them a good working over but this would be a very time consuming task. The old saying “let sleeping dogs lie” keeps running around my head every time I think about touching those scripts.
