    2 CGI Questions

    [list=1][*]If I have a CGI script running on a server/host that forces ads on every page, will the ad still apear on the HTML produced by the CGI script? I'm just looking for possible loopholes- I'm having trouble finding the right host.[*]Does anybody know of a good tutorial on how to use cookies?[/list=1]

    1. It most likely will. If you're clever, there are ways around it. (the easiest ones are browser-side. *cough* javascript). Other than that, get a new host. Adverts suck when you can't choose where to put them.

    2. CGI? You mean PHP or perl? if php { http://www.spoono.com/tutorials/php/cookies/ } elsif perl { http://www.gossland.com/course/cgi_use/cookies.html }

    I was thinking more along the lines of C/C++, but I guess the system would be very much the same under Perl.
