I am looking for a CGI password script that has a registration form, where you fill in simple stuff, like
Name, Age, Sex, USERNAME AND PASSWORD, the results of the form are e-mailed to  me, or placed in a file on the server, and it automatically adds their USERNAME and PASSWORD to the password file, so the user can instantly login. Where can I find out some more info and a script for one? Thanks.

I don't understand very well what do you mean with "the user can instantly  login" ; if you are talking about an UNIX system , the "effective" user of the server processes launched via CGI is usually the user of the web serving process (root in most cases). However , you can change the process uid and gid to any existent user.
Sending the stuff via form post is no problem but i think adding the user to the password file depends on the UNIX you have ; in most sysvr4 you may exec the "useradd" command ( supposing the invocator is root)  to register , but you can't , using standard methods, set a password.
Post more info if you want , so we can be more concrete.

I would assume "login" means "access the web site".. at least, that's the most logical use of such a script.
