mkcgi is a simple command line utility for producing a perl CGI script instantly by parsing an existing HTML form. The resulting perl script is easy to understand and customize.
Features include error checking, confirmation email sent to the admin and user, plain text tab delimited logging, MySQL support and redirection to a thank you page.
mkcgi takes 2 arguments. The first is the html file name of the form you want it to parse and the second is the file name of the cgi you want to create.
mkcgi will load the form field values into your favorite UNIX editor. You'll need to verify the field names look accurate and remove any duplicates (radio buttons) or other unnecessary HTML.
Next edit the proper field names that will be used for error checking and displayed to the user.
Next edit configuration information and comment out fields that are not required or add special error checking.
A SQL file will be created that you can load into MySQL so your data can be inserted. Your CGI script is ready!
What's New in This Release:
Command line switches were added for easy configuration.
