Help please...

Does anyone know how to set up a data base and read from it? I am very new to CGI.

Also does anyone know how to send an e-mail with CGI?

Re: Help please...

Those are loaded questions, and impossible to answer in a single post.

The easiest way to start learning Perl CGI programming is to look at other people's code. Try finding some freeware examples of Database programs and Emailing programs.

Then, of course, (or first) is to pick up a book, probably CGI Programming with Perl, by Guelich, Gundavaram & Birznieks, or, Learning Perl, by Randal Schwartz & Tom Christiansen is a better option.

Good luck!

That one's in the FAQ on the last page.
