mortalhero has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I am still quite a novice at this. I was succeful at sending numbers from my "index.htm" page to a file called "testscript.pl" which contains my secret formula. I now want the script to return the answer to the same "index.htm" page, but the response clears "index.htm" and creates a new page called "testscript.pl". I don't want to clear the original .htm page. I simply wnat to present the answer in it some how. I used a form to send the data to the script file, but there doesn't seem to be a form for receiving data back from a script file. Is what I'm trying to do even possible?

Thank you
