: : Hi,
: : I have a web page with a button. The html code FORM ACTION invokes a
: : C executable, button.cgi. The button works and the button.cgi runs.
: : What happens is the web page changes to a blank page, with the url
: : being http://button.cgi?.
The FORM METHOD is GET. I would like to
: : use this button without the web page changing. That is, I want the
: : original web page with the button to remain. How can this be done?
: Replace the button.cgi program with one that does something useful.
: If you can't edit the web page, you must have access to the CGI
: server. There's no way of doing it if you can change neither the web
: page nor the CGI program, or anyone could disrupt anyone's CGI
: program without so much as a by your leave.
Ok...I have full control over editing the web page and the cgi programs. I was looking for information on how to accomplish what I wanted to do. Telling me to "Replace the button.cgi program with one that does something useful." does not seem to do this. Can you help? Thanks.
