This site takes you by the hand and leads you step by step through the process, so you can actually do the exercises in the tutorial on a Unix based server that you are Telnetting into. Excellent tutorial! I had looked at a few other tutorials and an online book and most seemed to assume you already had knowledge about scripting and linking the html files to the cgi programs. On the other sites I couldn't find the instructions for starting from square one. With what I have learned from this tutorial I should be able to go back to the other sites and work through their problems, but I needed to use this site first.
