If you've followed our Writing a simple form mailer tutorial, you'll know how to write a simple Perl form handler that uses a static HTML page to display the form.
Checkbuttons are for when you want to select none, some, or all items.
For example, a shopping list might consist of Bread, Milk, Soda, and Eggs.
Reading and copying selected text to clipboard using Java Script In this tutorial, we'll see how to read the textual contents of a user selection, dynamically select some text on the page, and last but not least, copy whatever is selected to clipboard, all using just Java Script.

You might also want to write a quiz or questionnaire, and have your program take different actions depending on the answers.
All of these things require some more advanced processing of the form data, and that will usually involve using control structures in your Perl code.
Control structures include conditional statements, such as if/elsif/else blocks, as well as loops like ) is false.
