SUNDAY MID-DAY Working with Forms 219 The example points to a fictitious CGI script, (the .pl file extension signifies that it is a script written using the Perl programming language, which is commonly used to create CGI scripts). To create a functional form, you would need to specify an actual CGI script that you have access to on the Web. For further discussion of using form process- ing CGI scripts, see "Creating CGI Forms" later in this session. Creating Input Controls The INPUT element allows you to create a variety of different input con- trols in forms. There are three basic input controls that you can create in a form: text boxes, radio buttons, and check boxes.
