user access

As a website developer, I am providing username/password acesss on my site.  I check against a flat file.

My boss is now saying that that should be controlled by sales people., ie.. they can add new people, delete people ec..

Is there standard interface/template for the same? Codebase would be very good.  langauge Perl.

Forget about it. If it's controlled by sales people you may as well make it a plain text file and publish it out on the main page for all to view.

That is very  good approach, if you have to implement.

My site has more than one user and is accessed by outside people.

old time was being sarcastic, i.e., you can't trust the sales people to keep the system secure, so you might as well just give the passwords to everyone

Alternatively, tear a new hole in your jeans, if you're going to get shafted you might as well enjoy it.
