Using Tcl to Process HTML Forms

Trewitt, Glenn

May 1994

Abstract: One of the most interesting uses of the World Wide Web is the creation of interactive applications that let users ask questions, query databases, or place orders, using HTML forms. Most of the work of developing such applications is the creation of programs to process these forms. John Ousterhout's Tool Command Language (Tcl) is an ideal tool for this task. With additional extensions, Tcl can access databases and be distributed across machines. This paper gives a brief introduction to HTML forms, how to create them, and how to process them using Tcl. We assume that the reader is familiar with the World Wide Web, the operation of Mosaic, and the Hypertext Markup Language, HTML.
