Basically I want to do what the title says. When someone enters a string, I want the cgi to open text files or html files and see if one of those files contain the string that was entered. Like searching pages. I know how enter the string and pick it up in the cgi, I know how to open a text file, I'm not positive how to do mulitple files, and I'm guess the search part would be If *<string>* = File1 then It's the right file else check if the string is equal to File2. Am I doing this right or is there a better way or do you have any suggestions?
