Anybody know how to target more than one frame window with a basic form script?  I want the form (on the left side of the page) to refresh the two right side frame windows with information entered from the form.

Would a SSI be a better solution?

I don't think SSI will make much difference.
Maybe Java or JavaScript  (or since you're posting this here, PerlScript,
although there aren't as many browsers currently supporting that)

From the CGI side, the easiest thing to do would be to build a new frameset.

Oso suggested, building a new frameset out of a CGI (perl) script.  How do you do that?

You just print out a new frame with help of HTML.

Yes obviously, but I am trying to target more than one window.  that would require using PRINT to produce three seperate HTML files;  the "frameset" page and both of the "framesrc" pages.

How can you get a perl script to print multiple HTML pages?

Did you try
print "<FRAMESET FRAMEBORDER=0  FRAMESPACING=\"1\" COLS=\ "180,*\">\n";
print "<FRAME SRC=W1.html  NAME=\"FIRST\">\n";
print "<FRAME SRC=W2.html  NAME="TWO"'>\n";
print "</FRAMESET>\n";
...
open W1.html , write IN
open W2.html , write IN to.
