    scripts

    I am asking this as a person who has little if any knowledge of CGI scripts. Where is the best place to learn or have a script made (simple) to be able to have forms on pages e-mailed to individuals, and forms made to show ona web page. I know this is very simple for aot of you but for me I am going into an area I have very little knowledge but want to learn.

    THANKS

    Paul

    I have two suggestions for you.
    Here is a site with a simple CGI tutorial, covering form processing and sendmail.
    http://www.htmltutorials.net/cgi_tut...roduction.html

    Also, you may try using FormMail. It's one of the most popular, easy to use CGI scripts for emailing HTML form data.
    http://www.scriptarchive.com/formmail.html

    Hopefully one of those will help!
    If not you can post a reply.

    The tutorials and examples offered at this site are filled with errors and bugs and definately not a good place to learn. The books listed in the recommended reading also share these attributes.

    And the most insecure and buggy. Even Matt no longer recommends his scripts. Security Focus put MSA FormMail attacks third in their list of the Top Attacks for the 1st Quarter of 2002.

    A _much_ better place to learn Perl (the language used for CGI scripting is the previous posters examples and the most widely used language for building CGI programs) is from the official documentation.
