How Do I do This?

I don't know CGI, but am familiar with Pascal, C, and HTML - I would like to write a program that is able to transfer information entered on a form, and write it to the page - similar to a guestbook.  I just need it to support two fields:  1.  Name  2.  Email Address   Any help would be much appreciated

I assume you want to write it in C, since you're familiar with it, in which case, I can't be of much help, as I'm not familiar with C.  However, I have heard of something called 'cgi.c' which I assume contains all the code necessary to handle the cgi part of the program.  Maybe if you take a look at its source/docs that will tell you what you need.

Here is a simple perl script that will take input from a form and output it to a html document.

---- cut here ----
#!/usr/local/bin/perl

require "cgi-bin.pl";

print &PrintHeader;
print <<__END_OF_HEADER__;
<HTML>
<HEAD>
</HEAD>
<BODY>

EMAIL: $in{'email'} NAME: $in{'name'}<br>

</BODY>
</HTML>
__END_OF_HEADER__
1;

---- cut here ----

You can of course adapt this to output more complex documents but you can see the basics here.
