Download articles after giving email address Can't Post

We'd like to find a script that would allow a visitor to download either a single text article, or multiple articles, *after* they provide their email address. These articles would be in .pdf form.

Ideally, it would work something like this:

1] The visitor would see a page of choices, each with its own brief description and a checkbox;

2] They would check the one's they wanted, then enter their email address in a field on that page, and click submit.

3] A page would be returned with links to only the articles that they selected. As they then clicked each link on that returned page, the article would download as a .pdf.

I think we could do something like this with a simple FormMail.pl script, but was wondering if there was one out there that was more specifically tailored to this kind of situation.

Thanks for any suggestions...

This cgi script could be modified to meet your requirements. Has an existing option to ask for email address before downloading.

Thanks dalehend. We have used a Widex script before, and know their work to be first rate (the tech support was excellent). If this project comes to fruition, we'll certainly consider them again...
