Chapter 14:
CGI

The Common Gateway Interface can be used to gather information from consumers. There are two pieces to doing this.

First, an HTML form is used to gather information from a consumer.

Next, what the consumer fills in is handed to a CGI script.

Most companies use a language called Perl to build CGI scripts. You can see a simple Perl tutorial.

Additional Information

The University of Leeds has detailed tutorials on CGI and also on Perl. In addition, Carnegie Mellon has a Perl Manual online.
