The World Wide Web is more than a place to put up clever documents and pretty pictures. Gundavaram starts at the beginning, explaining the value of CGI and how it works, and takes you swiftly into the subtle details of programming.

The World Wide Web is more than a place to put up clever documents and pretty pictures. With a little study and practice, you can offer interactive queries and serve instant information from databases, worked up into colorful graphics. That is what the Common Gateway Interface (CGI) offers. The book offers a comprehensive look at the job of providing information dynamically on the Web.

CGI Programming with Perl: Creating Dynamic Web Pages. by Scott Guelich, Shishir Gundavaram, Gunther Birznieks.

The World Wide Web is more than a place to put up clever documents and pretty pictures. With a little study and practice, you can offer interactive queries and serve instant information from databases, worked up into colorful graphics. That is what the Common Gateway Interface (CGI) offers.This book offers a comprehensive explanation of CGI and related techniques for people who hold on to the dream of providing their own information servers on the Web.Good scripting is not limited to a knowledge of CGI -- you need to know something about other programming tools that organize data and make the output look attractive. Gundavaram starts at the beginning, explaining the value of CGI and how it works, and takes you swiftly into the subtle details of programming. The book offers a comprehensive look at the job of providing information dynamically on the Web.For most of the examples, this book uses the most common platform (UNIX) and the most popular language (Perl) used for CGI programming today. However, it also introduces the essentials of making CGI work with other platforms and languages. The actual programming techniques are not too different from one platform and language to another; the lessons from this book can be applied to any tools you choose.Topics include:

Basic Perl techniques for parsing and outputEmbedding Server Side Includes (SSI)Graphics and simple animationForms and magic cookiesGateways and SQL processingInternet communicationsExamples of games, imagemap manipulation, and other advanced applications
  • If you have a basic understanding of Perl and HTML, this book helps youlearn CGI. The book also introduced me to postscript and gd, which havebeen quite valuable for a lot of applicatioins. I enjoyed Shishir'smodest, down-to-earth writing style. Since many people have criticizedthis book, let me refute the most common criticisms:"The source code should be on a CD-ROM".No. Programming is in the fingers. You learn by typing. Anyway, you canFTP it if your lazy."The level of detail is poor".That's what man pages and FAQ's are for. Shishir is giving more of a guided tour of CGI, with just enough detail to get started in each area."The source code has mistakes/is missing semicolons."I didn't find this problem. But anyway, you should know enough Perl to put the semicolons where they belong. If you don't know Perl, this bookis not for you.Everything in this book is available on the web, but the book will savethe beginner a ton of time digging around.Also, Shishir does not encourage use of CGI.pm, which is both good and bad. I think it's good because it teaches better understanding of the low-level CGI mechanics. On the flipside, use of CGI.pm can protectyou from a lot of obvious mistakes.I haven't found a better introduction to CGI.

  • The book is inaccurate, showing examples that do not work. Sample files from the book (downloadable) are neither documented well, nor functional. Treatment of Perl is based on a few scenarios that the author found useful, most likely they will not pertain to you. The author neither gives you the constructs, nor the framework for you to build on his knowledge and create solutions of your own. After purchasing and reading the book, I had to resolve my Perl needs by searching for code on the web and changing it to suit me. You can do much better with the free information available via your browser.

  • this is perhaps one of the less clear o'reilly's books. the author makes a good effort on a (sometimes) tricky subject, but his explanations are not always satisfactory.

    to compound the issue, the author's coding style is a little annoying. embedding unusually long fragments into decisions, unneccessary string appending (vs variable interpolation), etc.. this leads to a more formidable 'look' to his code examples.

    there is a lot of good information to be gained from the book, though. for programmers who haven't learned cgi yet, i would suggest this title. for those with little or no coding experience, this book is probably not for you.

  • This is an excellent book. I'd recommend it to anyone who is getting started in CGI programming. It will not teach you Perl; for that I used O'Reilly's "Programming perl" while I read through this book's examples. For CGI programming, however, this book does its job very well.I noticed another review that said that code in this book didn't work. I've actually used code from this book in a half-dozen sites now, and it worked fine. More importantly, the code was well-enough explained that I've modified it over and over again to do what I needed.I still pull this book out every so often, and a few of my friends come by my house and read it. It's a very useful tool for anyone who wants to get started with CGI programming.

  • This book is a waste. It has about 2 chapters of any real value. I'd recommend O'Reilly's excellent "Learning Perl" by Schwartz and Christiansen. It has as much useful information in its CGI chapters as the entire "CGI..." book. And you really have to know Perl anyway to understand the "CGI..." book. So start there and see what happens.

  • Mr Gundavaram has successfully included cool working examples in this book, but failed to explain them in plain, easy understandable words. There are times when I 'got lost' while reading this book. The book itself is highly informative as a reference, but if you're looking for a Perl tutorial, go somewhere else.

  • Not easy to understand. Sometimes it is difficult to follow what the author means. There is too much detail, which I feel was getting in the way of understanding CGI.

    I was initlally exicited , but after reading the first few chapters, i think i will have to look elsewhere.
