Part: I Tcl Basics > The Guestbook CGI Application

Chapter 3. The Guestbook CGI Application

This chapter presents a simple Tcl program that computes a Web page. The chapter provides a brief background to HTML and the CGI interface to Web servers.

This chapter presents a complete, but simple guestbook program that computes an HTML document, or Web page, based on the contents of a simple database. The basic idea is that a user with a Web browser visits a page that is computed by the program. The details of how the page gets from your program to the user with the Web browser vary from system to system. The Tcl Web Server described in Chapter 18 comes with this guestbook example already set up. You can also use these scripts on your own Web server, but you will need help from your Webmaster to set things up.
