CGI/Perl teaches users how to write CGI programs using the Perl programming language, the most common way Web sites accept orders over the Internet. Users begin the book with an introduction to the Perl language and progress into developing forms and graphics using CGI. Each chapter includes hands-on exercises and case projects to encourage readers to work with the concepts they studied. Case projects run from chapter to chapter so readers have three working CGI applications they can include in any Web portfolio.
