I just got my *third* ever cgi script up and running -- less than a week from my very first attempt at cgi!! Oh, I like this.
And I'm picking up on the way the perl puts out html, which is good, because this latest script is a search engine submitter, which seems to be quite well coded, but the output/interface falls somewhere between netscape1-bland
and just plain hideous. But after studying what coding was there and how it was written, I *think* understand the perl print commands so I can go in and format it much better. Er, I hope I'm understanding it right, anyway ;-)
But the beautifying can wait for now -- I'm just going to sit and be happy that I got it to work!
I guess reading all these posts here about cgi long before I had a cgi-bin of my own apparent sunk in somewhere. ;-)
