Hi,
I've set-up a secured order form at my site. I need help to write a CGI to place the secured infomation in a file that can be downloaded from the server. I'm a computer technician
with no knowledge of programing. Any help here would be appreciated.

First of all, get Perl 5.  See http://www.perl.com/.

There's a ready-made script to have the contents of a form sent by e-mail at http://www.worldwidemart.com/scripts/readme/formmail.shtml

You shouldn't have too much trouble just grabbing those two and using them, but if you'd like a better understanding of what's going on, there's a CGI tutorial meant for nonprogrammers at http://lightsphere.com/dev/class/.

Enjoy your foray into CGI!

of CGI files.
