  9. I just want to know how to retrieve form data from perl and then write it to a file. I honestly don't care about the complexity. I'm not even planning to host any sites quite yet. I forgot to ask if my perl file could be kept as a .pl or do I have to compile it to a .cgi or somthing

  12. Hello. I am beginning per for cgi scripting. I have been trying to find out how to do a simple form POST. I want it to take the info from a textbox and then write it to a file called info.txt.
