Dear Experts,

I am very new to the cgi-perl programming. I have been working in VB before but now for my own website I need to install a cgi script. It is fine and runs well but looking thru the code and reading some perl books I could not understand some of the lines in the programs. Please explain to me what they means and what they do:

--------------
Line 1: use CGI::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser);
Line 2: use CGI;
Line 3: $in = new CGI;
Line 4: $action = $in->param('action');
Line 5: $userid = $in->param('userid');
Line 6: $adm_passwd = $in->param('adm_passwd');

--------------

thanks for your help.

Regards,
Kaku
