Hi,
I am studying CGI programming with Perl!
I want to learn :-
1. If in C program we keep 'Hello World' as char or some integer, how can i show it in html page via perl cgi script?
2. If via html page we get some value like integer/string as user input, how can we send it to c program via perl cgi script so in c program we can do something using it?

Need help!

I don't know of an API between C and Perl CGI, but it might help if I knew the problem you were trying to solve.
