Used for all app code and supporting scripts. Although we quite like C++, we
chose to use Perl instead as it is much easier for volunteers to get to grips
with and is a very powerful tool for mangling data around (which we obviously
do a good deal of). If volunteers want to use a different language, that's OK
with us, so long as we can run it, of course. We run Perl both as CGI scripts
and under mod_perl.
The version control system we use for all the source code and web pages.
Anyone wanting to help really must use this. A zipped file containing the correct versions of CVS and SSH to run on Windows for use on the project can be
downloaded here (cvs_ssh.zip), and there is also a page of instructions on how to
install and run them.
