I found a cgi form script called (bform) infosheets.com that works great but the recipient email and other important data must be included in hidden input tags that can be seen by viewing the soarce code of a page example
<input type=hidden name="recipient" value="email@myhost.com">
My question is how can I put a input value in the script itself I tried $recipient then edited a bit but it will not work no matter what, I have a little understanding but need help.

$recipient = "email\@myhost.com";

Give it a try. Notice \@ in $recipient.
