Forms, CGI and PHP

Last week we played with some nifty form elements. If you missed the action, or just want to revise, the W3C have the definitive word on forms here, or you can find a gentler introduction on w3shools.

This week we'll try to implement a simple form. See if you can re-create the following useful web page:

Set the form's action attribute to point to dump-globals.php - which you can pick up from either here (if your outside the TAFE lab) or here (if you're inside the firewall).

Copy your new web page and dump-globals.php onto the bathurst-tafe web server, set the permissions, and test the page using both GET and POST methods.
