    I have a question regarding implementation of a CGI script that takes information and then passes it along to another page...

    Basically, On my page i have a form that has a pull down menu for users to select their e-mail client (hotmail, yahool, aol etc.) and then the users enter their login and PW. Based on the information that they submit, the Script that ihave passes along their information to the respective hosts (hotmail, etc.)
    Only problem is is that with one of the hosts it displays the users Password Clear text in the URL. and Also, if they type in the wrong PW it displays Clear text as well.

    My CGI is using the "Location" function to forward on the information... Is there actually a "Post" function in Perl to avoid this problem?

    Well, you need to ask yourself who in the world is that stupid enough to risk giving you the chance to steal their passwords?
