WWW FAQ: Where can I learn how to create fill-out forms?


Where can I learn how to create fill-out forms?

Writing an HTML form is easy, but the form doesn't accomplish anything until you write a CGI program to interpret the results on the server side! For more information, see the section on CGI scripts.

"I know how to write CGI programs, I just don't know how to write forms in HTML."

See the w3 consortium pages <URL:http://www.w3.org/hypertext/WWW/MarkUp/html-spec/> for the HTML specification. Also consult virtually any book about HTML for information about forms. A good HTML reference guide is a worthwhile investment.

See the section on email forms for a simple solution to the most commonly desired form.
