In ASP we can embed ASP code in HTML tags. How the same thing can be achieved in CGI?
In ASP, there is facility of redirecting from one file to other. How this can be done in CGI? Is there

The big question is - what language are you doing your CGI in?  Using cookies is very common (with the Set-Cookie header to set it and checking HTTP_COOKIE to retrieve it).  Different languages and web servers use sessions differently, so I don't know how to answer that question.

typically you write hidden tags to embed your variables in the html page.

as mnashadka says about headers, they will also be useful for your redirects.

Embedded Perl (embperl) allows to insert Perl code into HTML page.

What kind of redirect you need? Do you want redirect client's browser or just caal another script?

For sessions you can use Apache::Session module

Redirecting from one file to other, i think u can think of "server side includes"

Server side includes are directives which we can place into html documents to execute other programs or output such data as environment variables and file statistics.

Let me know if you want any further information on this.
