Ignorant about CGI
Posted on 2002-05-23
I'm trying to save the contents of an Acrobat form to a database. The Acrobat help files says this:
"For this process to work, you must have a CGI application on the Web server to collect and route the data to a database. Any existing CGI application that collects data from forms (in HTML or FDF format) can be used to collect data from PDF forms."
I'm not familiar with Perl. All I know about it is that CGI is done in Perl most of the time (if that is even correct).
Layman's terms please -- I'm Perl ignorant, remember.
