Requirements and FAQ</h2></center>


<h4>Q.  What are the requirements to run CodeKit?</h4>

CodeKit should run anywhere that PHP or Perl run,
on Unix, Linux or Windows.

<p>
CodeKit will run on any database management system
with an SQL interface.  A sample MySQL schema is provided.
If you use CodeKit with another database send me
your schema and I will add it to the next release.

<p>
The Perl version needs the DBI.pm package.  You can
use any CGI library such as CGI.pm.

<p>
The PHP version will work out of the box using the
PEAR, ADODB or phplib database libraries.  Porting
to a new database library is trivial.  Let me know
if you need another one.

<p>
CodeKit is licensed as free software under the LGPL
which means that you can use it for any project.
If you do, send me a note saying how it went!


<h4>Will CodeKit work with a templating system?</h4>

The CodeKit.php class file will generate very nice user
HTML select elements. You should be able to call
$codekit->select(...) from within the templating system.
It returns the select element as a string which you
can print or insert into the page:

<pre>
$str = $codekit->select('offered_courses');

print $str;
</pre>

Even if you do not use CodeKit to generate HTML, it
is still useful as the interface to enter and maintain
all of your database the codes and their descriptions.
