Can someone explain why this doesn't work:
<form method="get" action="http://cgi-bin/johnlabwk6.pl">
( I get server not found error when I hit submit button in form)
and this does work:
<form method="get" action="http:/cgi-bin/johnlabwk6.pl">
The above line was in some html provided by the author of a text book.
I have Apache2.2 on Windows and I am just learning about cgi. I searched for answers and didn't find anything but it would seem the typical way to specify the URI path in this case would be:
<form method="get" action="/cgi-bin/johnlabwk6.pl">
The above also works fine and I think I will modify the example from the book for the students I am teaching distributed programming concepts to - not just CGI. BTW my html page is in the standard location for Apache - htdocs.
