Dynamically create list of directories for search

Current:

web page has hard coded directories (using checkboxes) user may choose
to search for files matching a pattern they enter in text box. Perl is
used to search for files and to format HTML output.

Desired:

dynamically created group of checkboxes upon opening web page. My
initial idea is to have user run separate Perl script to find
directories and built the HTML output. they would then make their
choices from group of directories.

Is there a way WITHIN the web page for JavaScript to call the Perl
script and have it return the directory names and modify the HTML to
create the checkboxes? or a drop menu?

TX - replies may also be sent to http://www.velocityreviews.com/forums/(E-Mail Removed)

Search google for "ajax tutorial". You can also find a nice article
here http://www.hunlock.com/blogs/Concurrent_Ajax ( shameless self-link ).
