Pulling Input from HTML into Shell

I am trying to add to a Web page that I have, the ability to have users make requests as long as they key in a password.

Can anyone help me with validating the text from the text field on the Web page into UNIX?

Please let me know if I need to be clearer.

Thanks,

It sounds like you'll need a cgi script. Set up your web form to call the script as the 'action' and you'll find an environment variable avialable to your script named after the testbox name. Easy! Smilie
