I have a set of forms for my web site.
The first form asks for E-mail address from the user.
After he fills in the first form, he goes to the second form
where he has his e-mail address already in it.The other fields ask for his user name and password.
I would like to know how I can get back the e-mail address from the first form into the second form.

RE: Forms

The CGI script that parses the first form can be used to generate the HTML for the second form.  Send the output to STDOUT and it will arrive at the user's browser.  The HTML for the e-mail address will look something like:

<input name="email" value="fredbloggs@somewhere.com">

"fredbloggs@somewhere.com" will be taken from the input for the first form, and will appear as a default value in the input field.  The user will be allowed to amend it.


RE: Forms

Thank you very much.
I hope this will work.
I will let you know if I have any problem.
