I have a drupal site with the webform module, the user fills out a form on the website and the data goes into the database. Then some back end perl queries the database and processes the data entered, the users then get an e-mail with results.
I would like to enhance the application by closer integrating the back end perl code and drupal. What I need is the user to submit the form, then immediately drupal kicks off perl to crunch the data and on the confirmation page present the user with the output of the process, allow the user to confirm the submission and then kick off another perl script.
I do not have any programming experience outside of intermediate perl, but am willing to learn a few things to get this done.
What are some of my options?
Thanks in advance
