Can anyone transform this program to perl or CGI Pleaseeee..

Hello all,i must confess that u guys are really doing a great job here..i have a problem which i really hope would be solved by anyone of you..I have a cgiemail program running in my host server which i have mastered completely..But the problem is that i recently discovered that there are hosts that give far much better features and i intend signing up with them..so please can anyone go through the complete documentation of the program here http://flamesofpentecost.8m.net/laz/index.html and convert the file /cgi-bin/cgiemail which is the standard form action for the cgiemail program to a cgi file,maybe,"gateway.cgi" so that i can be able to edit the file and run the program on any host that supports cgi.I also want the form to function excactly the way it functions on my host server...I desperately need an urgent reply..

I'm not saying it can't be done but I won't do it.

What you're asking is to transfer a service from your hosting provider to a script you can use on each server perl is installed on. What I advice you is to search for a perl or php script that grabs all information from a form and sends it to your emailaddress. There should be some of them on the internet.

For example you can look at nms which doesn't do the above but it lets you create highly costumized mailforms, The perl archive or just search with Google

Yea as a matter of fact i know that there are several email feedback forms on the net but all i wanted was for the program to be converted to CGI and stored in a single file which would serve as the form action..then the environmental variables like cgiemail_html,cgiemail_message.... would be working just as they work in the program i wouldn't have asked for someone who could do it if i had the source code so please can you just create a .cgi file that acts like that which i would use as the action for all my forms....REPLY

I understood your request wrong, I thought you had the source and wanted it to be converted. But as I understand now all you're asking for is a script that catches all parameters and sends it to your email address.

I hope someone helps you.
