I understand. The reason I would like to reinvent the wheel is for
learning purposes only. I have been coding for last few months in perl
under linux and the main objective here is to learn as much as I can. So
I decided to wet my feet and design a catalog/cart system(very simple
one at that) using MySQL and Perl.

Great I will check that out as well. But this is going to be my pet
project for next month and a half. (PHP After I am done with it) So
Basically I want to implement some type of secure data transfer. I found
out about OpenSSL (Apache) and Mod_ssl and will do some reading and
research on em. So will probably not go through all those Merchant
account stuff for now [I have so little money :(].
I really appreciate your valuable input. Thanks a lot.
