Hi Forum,

<background>
I would like to present some data (from very little to over 3000 rows) on a web page. At the moment I am using perl catalyst and perl template (with as little JS as possible) to do this. Ext JS appears to offer a very clean way of presenting the data (the array-grid example on the home page is ideal).

<problem>
I have no idea where to start with passing the data, currently in a perl array of arrays, from the Controller to the View in a way that I can pass it to Ext JS without having to do much data manipulation.
</problem>

I have very little knowledge of Javascript - although I have already used some basic JS and Prototype.

Pointers would be most welcome ... I am not adapting to the ext js documentation system.

Thanks in advance.


I apologise if this is a painfully stupid question ... I don't do much coding on 'front-ends'
