What is CGI/Perl?
Perl was originally designed to be a interpreter to help UNIX users with common
tasks. However, with the explosive growth of the Internet it has been
adapted to be a excellent interface to the web.
Perl has become the
preferred programming language for making websites dynamic and user interactive.
For example, you can use Perl to grab the data from your web page forms and
perhaps write this data to a file (as in a guestbook) or send it to you via
E-mail (as in a form).
