Hi All,

I'm an experianced VB & Java programmer but until now haven't really applied this to web pages.

For a charity event I want to put a comment box on our site for feedback.  Only to capture Name & Comment fields > preferably to store the info in a text file.

Is CGI the right route to be going down or should I be looking at ASP.

It should be a pretty simple thing to achieve no?

I was googling but only getting examples for db's and user/name password guestbooks etc.  All this is a lot more than I need really.

Any ideas????

Cheers guys/gals

Yes, I have an idea. Tell us what languages can you use for CGI. Maybe also your web server and operating system.

The task itself is simple.


RE: Save Comments

Well I'n new to CGI but I beleive I can use VB, Java & Perl to accomplish this?  Do I need to install something to use perl?

I'm running Abyss X1 web server on Windows 2003, only cause I didn't have my I386 folder handy to setup IIS.  Plan to migrate soon.

Any server-side language will be able to perform this task for you. It doesn't really matter which you choose.
