    Smile posting forms

    Your form must call a script which can be written in perl, php, ruby, python
    The script must retrieve the fields posted by the html.form.
    Download the perl manual. Read chapter 12 then start again at chapter 1.
    You can only post a form by posting it to a named script.

    CGI can execute any executable file in the system. So it can be a script like a Perl, Python, Bash, whatever script with #! at the top; or it can be a program compiled from C, or whatever; the file needs to be executable (have executable permission).
