Applications and source code are presented in both languages in the book and on the CD-ROM. You'll learn how to generate HTML pages and images on the fly, get CGI access on your ISP's site, ensure security for your CGI-activated site, parse form submissions directly, and send e-mail via forms and CGI. The CD-ROM contains a complete range of CGI software libraries in both C and Perl, ready to plug into your Web site: Thomas Boutell's cgic library, a complete CGI implementation in C; the gd dynamic graphics library for GIF generation in C; the popular Mapedit imagemap editing program; several Perl libraries; and all the source code and sample applications from the book.

Programming on the Web today can involve any of several technologies,but the Common Gateway Interface (CGI) has held its ground as the most mature method - and one of the most powerful ones - of providing dynamic web content. CGI is a generic interface for calling external programs to crunch numbers, query databases, generate customized graphics, or performing any other server-side task. There was a time when CGI was the only game in town for server-side programming; today, although we have ASP, PHP, Java servlets, and ColdFusion (among others), CGI continues to be the most ubiquitous server-side technology on the Web.

CGI programs can be written in any programming language, but Perl is by far the most popular language for CGI. Initially developed over a decade ago for text processing, Perl has evolved into a powerful object-oriented language, while retaining its simplicity of use. CGI programmers appreciate Perl's text manipulation features and its module, which gives a well-integrated object-oriented interface to practically all CGI-related tasks. While other languages might be more elegant or more efficient, Perl is still considered the primary language for CGI.

This book offers a comprehensive explanation of using CGI to serve dynamic web content. Based on the best-selling CGI Programming on with World Wide Web, this edition has been completely rewritten to demonstrate current techniques available with the module and the latest versions of Perl. This book starts at the beginning, by explaining how CGI works, and then takes you swiftly into the subtle details of developing CGI programs.

Topics include:

  • Incorporating JavaScript for form validation
  • Controlling browser caching
  • Making CGI scripts secure in Perl
  • Working with databases
  • Creating simple search engines
  • Maintaining state between multiple sessions
  • Generating graphics dynamically
  • Improving performance of your CGI scripts

The book reviews CGI's role in the client/server model used by Web-based systems, security, transaction, and state. It also looks at the role that language selection doesn't play in resolving these three-tiered client-server solutions. Next, CGI Developer's Resource walks through the construction of more than ten practical CGI applications - first with Tel, and then with Perl. You'll encounter virtually every major class of CGI problem as you build data file and e-mail front ends; calendar applications; intranet "white pages" directories; intranet system management utilities; and more. CGI Developer's Resource includes detailed coverage of both client and server-side issues. It shows how to optimize and manage Web servers used for CGI processing; use cookies to customize the information you deliver; improve security; and work with log files. It even touches on where the future might lead, and provides a resource directory. If you want to leverage your programming skills to deliver sophisticated Internet/intranet applications, CGI Developer's Resource will help you get the job done right.

Perl is by far the most popular programming language for creating scripts that add powerful interactive features to Web pages. Included on most UNIX platforms and available free of charge for Windows and Macintosh, Perl lets you place forms on your Web site that collect and process user input such as product orders and comments, enable visitors to conduct keyword searches for information on your site, and integrate a database into your site, among many other capabilities. Perl and CGI for the World Wide Web: Visual QuickStart Guide gets you to the heart of Perl scripting with CGI. Even first-time programmers will be able to create interactive Web pages and, more importantly, you'll be able to use your new-found familiarity with Perl to understand and customize the multitude of scripts that already exist on the Web. Following on the huge success of Liz Castro's top-selling HTML:Visual QuickStart Guide-the book to have to learn or reference HTML-Castro's Perl and CGI for the World Wide Web: Visual QuickStart Guide is soon to become the choice for learning Perl and CGI. Author of the acclaimed, best-selling HTML:Visual QuickStart Guide, with over 100,000 copies sold. Teaches you all you need to know to start creating CGI scripts in Perl. Shows how to make your Web pages stand out with interactive features such as guest books and forms. Assumes no prior programming experience.
