Looking to use CGI scripts on your Tripod page, but not sure how to start? No problem! We've put together a few standard CGI modules (packages of functions) that will make your scripts work. In The Module Archive, you'll find a collection of Perl modules you can use, along with your cgi-bin, to make scripts work on any Tripod page. These modules will allow you to do the following tasks:
- Email a message to a visitor.
- Get the current date, and compare it against another date.
- Grab and save the contents of a form.
- Write a page to the screen, with dynamic content of your choice.
- And a whole lot more!
To copy the modules to your cgi-bin directory, just click the "Upload" button. In addition to the modules, you'll find a file called "modules_readme.html." This file contains detailed instructions on how to use modules in your scripts, and lets you know what each module can do.
