What is the best way to go about this?

Q:
I am attempting to learn some of the basics of cgi scripting; however, I
am not sure I am headed in the right direction.

I use dreamweaver and I want to set up a way to have someone got to a
password protected form page and enter fields that will be incorporated
into an .html page on their site. It is different than a guest book page
because I don't want to just list the fields, I want to integrate this
inputed information into an .html page on their site

What is the best way (perl, php, etc.) to go about this.

Any direction or info. you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
A:
http://www.comp.leeds.ac.uk/Perl/Cgi/start.html

is a good CGI Perl tutorial. You can learn from that. This tutorial is
really a simple start one describing all details from the very beginning.
This actually starts with Perl, but you can also use PHP for the purpose.

Peter
