will work as in $var will get a string.

In my PERL mycgi.cgi I print a "content: textn" before I print that string.

I am asking if a php or a form can call a cgi and get values for them?

e.g. in html form
<input type=text name=var value=http:mywebcgi-binmycgi.cgi?...

or in a php script


Thanks in advance.
