    read from file, display on page

    i'm not 100% sure that cgi is what is needed to do this, but here goes. what i need to do is to read some information in from a file which will be on the user's machine (i've got a program which saves the info to a file, then launches the website), then display it on the webpage, and finally (and hopefully) save that info to the server (appending one file each time).

    there's two problems i see in doing this:

    1) i don't know where to save this file so that it can be read by the webpage. i thought about saving it to the "C:" drive of the user's machine, but not all people have a C hard drive.

    2)i don't know anything about cgi. hehe...


    the file would just be a few lines of info, such as the version number of the program and the current date/time.



    could anyone please help me out because i can't release the newxt version of my program til i get this up and running. and other than this the next version is ready.
