Chapter 11. Forms > Using the Scripts Included with This Book

Using the Scripts Included with This Book

With this book, I have included a set of very simple scripts that you can use to process the data that visitors submit to your Web site. These scripts are designed to help you understand how forms work and get you started. To really get some use out of them, you will have to know a little Perl (or be willing to learn). If you're just interested in getting the data from a form, you're probably better off using e-mail (see page 194).

To use the scripts included with this book:

1.
Download the desired scripts from my Web site: http://www.cookwood.com/html4_4e/cgiscripts/.

2.
Read and follow the instructions in Preparing a Script on page 192.

3.
Reference the script (from your server) in step 2 on page 193.

4.
Get a visitor to go to your site and press the Submit button!
