Chapter 2. Advanced Web > Assumptions

2.2. Assumptions

These hacks do assume a little more than an adventurous spirit and a researcher's tenacity. We assume that you already have some programming background or are willing to learn the basics as you go along. In fact, we've been happy to hear about so many readers picking up and learning a little programming through the hacks in the previous edition of this book; learning to program is so much easier if you have a particular task in mind.

You'll need to type in (or download) programs or scripts and run them from the command line (that's Terminal in Mac OS X or the DOS command window in Windows). Some are run as CGI scripts, bits of dynamic content running on your web site and talked to through your web browser. For more information on running hacks on the command line and as CGI scripts in your browser, see "How to Run the Hacks" in the Preface.
