Im tryin to upgrade my site in order to provide a better service, so I have to questions.
1. I have protected pages that I protect through .htacces, so when someone tries to acces them, they have to enter their username and password trough a popup window. But what I want is for them to be able to enter the username and password into a normal HTML form so they can gain acces to the protected pages without the popup window. How can I do this with a CGI ?
2. Can someone point me or tell me how can I set up a cookie with the username, password and expiration date of 999 years(forever), then how can I read it again, and how can I delete it? I know little about cookies and less about cookies with perl, so if you could give me like a really in diapers tutorial it would be great...
