    I want to put the result of a .cgi file in a html page, what I mean is that I want to embebed the .cgi file into a .html file.
    I can't use SSI because the .CGI file is in other server.

    Any suggestions!?

    You actually can.

    1) http://yourserver.com/cgi-bin/grap.cgi

    print "Content-type: text/htmlnn";
    use LWP::Simple;
    $target_file = "http://otherserver.com/cgi-bin/script.cgi";
    my $file = get($target_file);
    print "$filen";

    2) http://yourserver.com/myfile.html

    <!--#include virtual="cgi-bin/grab.cgi"-->

    To use Simple.pm, you need to download http://www.perl.com/CPAN-local/modul...rl-5.48.tar.gz
    Readme file at -> http://www.perl.com/CPAN-local/modul...rl-5.48.readme

    If that cgi script on other server only accepts POST method, you then need to use UserAgent.pm. For GET method, Simple.pm should be fine.

    Please note this message has nothing to do with javascript. Please post similar message to Perl forum next time.
