Link to cgi program without form
Posted on 1999-07-22
Is it possible to have a standard link on an html page that links to a cgi program but passes a fixed value to the cgi program without using a form textbox and a submit button?
If so, what is the syntax?
I have cgi prog. that outputs a large html table from a database, for each record in the table there is more information which I wish to link to. This extra info. is also in the DB so another cgi prog. is required to return the data as a screen full of html. There are too many records to write a CGI prog. for each, so I want one program that is linked to by all the records but each passes it a unique record number so it knows which record to output in detail.
Thanks in advance
