Writing a simple cgi-script with perl

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Runar Furenes, Jul 22, 2003.

  1. Can anyone please show me or point me to a web-page where I can get
    explained how to write a simple cgi-script with perl? I want to collect
    user-input-data with a simple html-form, POST this to the cgi-script, and
    then I want this script to print this information back to that
    html-document, sort of like a guestbook. The newest entries first. I'm
    thinking I could have a <!--comment-->-tag to show the cgi where to put the
    data, but I do not know how to make this script, and I can't find examples
    on the internet.

    Thank you for all help.
