The name of the module is CGI.
I know.... its a lot of reading. I've been reading that document for years and I still dicover new tid-bits. If you are totally new to CGI this is going to be a learning process so don't get discouraged if it seems like alien technology to you right now. Start simple. Make an html page with this link:
<a href="cgi-bin/test.pl?name=goude">Click here</a>
copy and paste this code into a plain text file and save it as test.pl
use CGI qw/:standard/;
my $query = param('name');
print "Hello $query!";
Upload it to a webserver (in ASCII or text mode) in the cgi-bin. chmod it to 755 if necessary. See you FTP applications help files for chmod if necessary.
Upload the html file into your webservers root www folder, name it test.html.
Open your web browser and type in the URI of the html document:
click the link.
