Hello,

My website is running n an UNIX platform, in which I have a Perl CGI Form script send it's results to a email address. I would like to replace (add functionality) to the CGI program to 1) display the form's contents in an HTML page after the send button is clicked, 2) automatically add certain fields in the form to a text database and 3) send the form's result's to the user as well.

I would like to know which 'freeware' CGI programs and text databases would best suit my task.  I know of several Free CGI sites, however, I'm looking for someone to tell me about scripts they have used themselves.

Thanks.

Check out a nifty program called WebMailerDB Pro, it allows you to set many parameters including posting form contents, creating a DB, e-mailing to either a list or to the poster.  Unfortunatly, it's not free.  On another note, there are many .pl or .cgi scripts that can be changed/edited to do what you ask, one that I know of off the top of my head is at Matt's Script Archive called FormMail.
