condorcet.cgi creates much more aesthetically pleasing HTML 2.0+ tables than the plain text output of condorcet.pl. If you want to see condorcet.cgi in action, check out the working version of the program. This is only the initial alpha release of this script. It's pretty crude, and the documentation is pretty much the program. This is just a release for the technically inclined. If you do decide to try it out, please let me know what you think. I was going to wait until I had the time to get everything documented and tested, but I would probably just wait forever.
Hopefully, there will be more user-friendly releases in the near future. I'll announce new versions here as they become available.

usage: perl condorcet.pl [-t] candidate-list ballot-list
Here's what it all means:
-t Print the raw tally table. (pair-wise election results) candidate-list - contains a two column, comma-separated list of candidate number and candidate names. Candidate numbers can be any non-negative integers of unlimited size. For efficiency, numbering should start at zero and proceed up in increments of one, but this is not a requirement. ballot-list - this should be a list of ballots, one per line. Each line should contain a list of candidate numbers separated by commas.Ballots are not checked for validity, and results may be unpredictable with bad input.
