I wanted to create a Body Mass Index calculator. I've already created a seperate HTML file with a form where you have to type in your weight and height. So far so good, now I want to 'transfer' the data to my cgi script (unix shell script) as soon as I hit the 'Submit' button. But I have no idea how to start the cgi script. So it like copies the data from the form into the script where I can calculate the body mass index in the end.
I tried a lot of things already but nothing worked so far. :( So I was wondering if anyone could give me a tip or something? I already checked the entire world wide web (or so it seemed xD) but I didn't really find anything.
Sorry if this is not allowed here, but I didn't know where else to ask. :(
