I'm a very lazy coder, so you might consider the following useful.

After one or two scripts, I decided that even that little CGI thing, fastCGI or whatever, was way too much work. Hence, I spend half a day to configure PHP, and used that for the simple stuff. For elaborate checking, I fire up some perl script, because PHP is not a very powerful language. But it is very simple to retrieve forms and to do some straightforward things with it.

PHP gives you every field of the forms back as a variable with the same name! So, no trouble with parsing. Also, some build-in functions to generate PNG's and it's also easy to link with RDBM's (postgresql). It also has some build-in checker for user-input, to prevent shell-escaping. You should check it out, methink.

And... just my 0.002 $.
I was dreaming of guitarnotes that would irritate an executive kind of guy (FZ)

Update: cleaned up some very sloppy language.
