- Saving variables over multiple pages

report based on the data. I want to use a single Perl script, but collect
the data on multiple html pages. I do not particularly want to create the
html pages from within the Perl script. How do I do it?

Re: Saving variables over multiple pages
What is the source of the form data? Are you getting it from a file
(data previously processed) or straight from the browser (CGI in realtime)?
For the latter, simply use a hidden field to identify which subsection
of your CGI program to use to parse the data. Grab the data from
the browser as each page comes in and write it somewhere. You'll
have to have some sort of mechanism to inform your CGI when the
data collection is complete so that it can create a summary.
This is assuming that you are not trying to parse the HTML output
from another site's CGI program. You'd want WWW::Mechanize for that.
