Small and silly code! :)

Hi...

I want someoen to write a very small code for me!

I just need it to work that way :)


well, the script name is code.cgi

when anyone clicks on http://www.MY-Website.com/code.cgi he/she will be redirected into another page on the same site....

now, i KNOW that there are many ways to redirect visitors from one page to another on my domain... but as i said, i need it to be done through a   .cgi file  (perl code)  :)

One more thing!

If someone clicks on
http://www.MY-Website.com/code.cgi?5545   or
http://www.MY-Website.com/code.cgi?ABCD   or
http://www.MY-Website.com/code.cgi?ANYTHING 

they ALL will be directed to the same page (that is mentioned within the code)

did you get it?  if i put ?XYZ  (or anything) after the code.cgi ... it still forwards visitor to the same page with no changes..

Well, hope this code will be easy engough for someone to write it!.

Thanks,


Sarah

  #! /usr/bin/perl -w

   print "Location: /~interiot/\n\n";


Or...  print "Location: http://google.com/\n\n"; or whatever.

interiot has already provided you with a perl solution.

Shell:
     #! /bin/sh

     echo "Location: /~interiot/"
     echo ""


C:
     #include <stdio.h>
     int main() {
          printf("Location: /~interiot/\n\n");
     }

Awk:
       #! /bin/awk BEGIN{printf("Location: /~interiot/\n\n")}



The string sent to a script after the question mark is sent via an environment variable.  Solutions posted here will likely simply ignore its contents and always print out the same redirection command.

Without the solution posted, this thread does not contain a solution and becomes a worthless PAQ.  Therefore, if the solution is not posted. I will remove the points for it.  Points can only be awarded for questions that are solved on the site and put into the PAQ.

Shirjeel,

You will need to post the solution, or I will have to remove the point award.

Inovator,

In the future please do not encourage experts to supply solutions by email.  It is clearly against site policy and goes against community interests.

I'll continue to monitor this question, and if the code is not posted, The points will be removed.

print "h";
print " ";
print "W";
print "o";
print "w";
print "\n";

shirjeel,

I don't think anyone expressed anger. Certainly no one inteded to be offensive. There was just a request for the solution to be posted, which you have done.

Thanks,
