I have a cgi script which collects information from a page and creates a second page of inputs. I need to include the information from the original page and the second page in an e-mail using sendmail. What is the best way of passing the information between the pages ?

best way of passing the information between the pages is putting it in hidden fields of POST <form>

OK lets see ... Suppose you were doing this with perl and all the results of the first page got sent to the form and were placed in variables ie($form{'Email'}) etc. well have the cgi spit out the second page except this time after the <form action ="some.cgi"> line
hide the info from the original page like so...


<input type="hidden" name="EMAIL" value="some@boy.com">
<input type="hidden" name="NAME" value="Me Jones">

And when you submit this to the second form it can send an email to you containing everything. I can whip up the exact code if you wish..
