in reply to PERL and HTML

What has been said already, but a few comments: You can use Dreamweaver or some other editor to create the initial webpage with form where the user's data is entered. The form should call your cgi script using the form "action". If you don't actually need to recreate the original page you could just have your script print out the results between <pre> </pre> tags. (This will appear on a new page. You also need the opening and closing html tags, but no other tags.) (Getting your script in the right place with the right permissions executable by a web user and a page which is writable by the script to hold the results is part of the problem but separate from the perl programming part.)
