Passing an argument through a A HREF tag.
Posted on 1998-04-25
I want to run a Perl script using an A HREF tag, and be able to pass a variable along with it as well.
<A href = "Smessage.pl Username" target ="Frame5">Send</a>
The script would recieve "Username" as an argument (I'm using perl and would like to use $ARGV). If it's not possible to do this with an argument how would I do this as a get/post action? I've seen it done on the web before. Much like a banner advertisement sending the page owners name to the cgi script.
Thanks in Advance.
