As to continue to generate HTML pages by your cgi program, the answer is no.  If you just want to get some information off a telnet session and you already have all the input available, no problem.
If you know what all the telnet session is going to ask, then you can set up form input to it, and it'll be difficult.

If you are just looking to do a telnet session through your web page, you can either put in a ``telnet'' in your HTML source by:

<A HREF="telnet://username@otherhost.com">Telnet to otherhost.com</A>

Or you can use Java to set up the telnet session and you control the session.
