CGI scripting with bash


Recommended Posts

So, I've just started dipping and dabbing in CGI scripting, and I've made a few nifty little CGI pages, but I've not quite figured out how I can actually pass an argument to the CGI script that bash can interpret.


I've found a few websites that explain that the $QUERY_STRING environmental variable is used a lot, and a bashlib library that apparently makes it possible to reference "parameters" by using "param parameter" name, but I've still not been able to accomplish what I want to do.


All I really want, is a html form with a text box and a submit button, that will call the script and send the information in the text field to it; I don't think it would be a hard task at all for anyone with even a fraction of a bit more experience with bash and CGI than I.
