in reply to form buttons

Usually you give your submit button a value and a name:
<input type="submit" name="action" value="Search"> <input type="submit" name="action" value="Logout">
and if you
use CGI;
you can then test for what action to do:
if (param("action") eq "Search") { # ... } # ...

Please take into account that this comes from the back of my head and I have not been doing CGIs for more than a year now; still it should be correct.
