Writing CGI scripts

This assignment is due 6 May, 1996, at 6:00 pm.

Short version

Write a nifty HTML form and a CGI script to process the form.

Long version

Write a HTML form with three or four choices and a CGI script to process the form. Your CGI script can be written in the programming language of your choice but should be of some respectable complexity -- say a page of code with the usuals if-then-else's, etc.

Try to do something that would be fun or useful.

The URL http://www.cs.unca.edu/csci/373.002/scripts/ has some examples of CGI scripts, written in both Perl and the Bourne shell, that run here at UNCA. From this URL you can run the scripts and see the CGI source for the scripts. Try to design a similar page for your homework 8 solution. It will make grading easier!

You do not have to do your work on the UNCA server. If you'd like to do the assignment at your usual Unix home, go ahead and just send me information about how I can access your handiwork.

Writing a form and script that works flawlessly deserves a B. To get an A, you have to do something a bit out of the ordinary.
