DESCRIPTION

Allow the user to see different pages using tabs. For an example of how it looks, see http://www.stilbuero.de/jquery/tabs/.

This module sets up tabs for different pages. The HTML can be supplied directly, or the page can be updated remotely. When used remotely, the program returns the run mode parameter, rm, as well as the parameter tab, which contains the text in the tab header.

In remote mode, taconite is not used to refresh the page. All that is expected is a normal html. If you are using CGI, something like this is expected:

   use CGI ;    
   my $q = new CGI ; 
   print $q->header(-type=>'text/html');
   print $env ;
