Passing variables to a frame page - perl/cgi?
Posted on 2003-03-12
I am creating a page with per./cgi scripts where you must first login and if login is successful you are transfered to the main page which is a set of 3 frames. A top frame just for the title, a left side frame with a list of links as options and finally the main frame which displays the selection chosen from the options. I need to use the username entered at the login page in all of the pages listed in the options menu. I am not sure if or where to pass the username as a hidden variable in order to use it in all the subsequent pages listed in the options menu. (I am a beginner in Perl/CGI).
Basically right now I have it check if login is valid and if it is then you are transferred to the frame page I set up but i can't access the username from the login. Thanks.
