Unfortunately FreeUK do not allow the use of custom cgi or perl but as we know
the majority of people will require a counter or a form submission script we have
supplied 2 generic scripts for all customers to use. We do not support the creation
of websites or cgi includes to existing pages if you have any problems the
information below is a guide to help overcome them:
Form-Mail is a very useful utility within the web environment that allows the author
to receive feedback from visitors to that site. It can also present the visitor with a very user-freindly interface with which to send information or questions to the author. This page will outline the basic structure of Form-Mail, and will hopefully supply an
insight into its possible uses.
A working example of Form-Mail is shown here

Counters are designed to help you easily track hits on a single webpage or
multiple webpages. This is very useful for seeing how much attention your website gets. Counters can also be expanded and have many attributes. Your counter can use a variety of fonts and you can customise it's border and colours to suit your website's design.

Perl & Cgi Programming
FreeUK do not allow the use of custom cgi or perl but, there are hundreds of
resorces sites out there to help you learn this powerful launguage. You could even turn your home machine (PC) into a web server (using Sambar sever) complete
with it's own 'cgi-bin' to test out your new scripts.
A good Perl & Cgi resorce site is located here
