Hi,

I have created the HTML for a "send a page to a friend" form. The page that has to be send is the previous one in history. The previous page has a link to the form below.
Could anyone help me with the CGI?

If the script is slightly different, it is also fine. As long as the page can be send to a couple of friends.

Thanks

is there an external pager program that is already provided to you??

if so, then you just need a CGI script that will act as a link between your static HTML form & that external pager program. Also in that case you would need to check what parameters and in what sequence does this ext program required the various inputs (pager #, message etc..).

If not, let this forum know how you currently send out a page to your friend using HTML.

Hi maneshr,

There is no external pager program provided to me.

I also don't send out a page to a friend at this moment, because I only have the HTML. I am just starting to learn Perl and this is more an "experts" thing.

You could start by ensuring that all the fields in the form which you want the browser to send to your script have names, so that in the script you can sort out each field. (Edit text of question?)
