In this tutorial I’ll show you how to create a simple form mailer CGI script in Perl. A form mailer script allows you to add feedback forms to your site. Visitors fill in the forms, and the information they fill in is emailed to you.
In this tutorial I’m going to show you how to write a very simple CGI script. I’ll also show you how to upload the script to your server, and get the script running.
Once you’ve mastered the technique of uploading this CGI script, you can use the same technique to install other CGI scripts too!
