For security reasons all File IO in Shockwave are disabled. Now, how could I save informations entered by users of a Shockwave application? Highscore, name & adress, credit card numbers ;)... Use cgi

    It is possible to send data with an url as a query_string and if this url points to a propper script on your server the data will be processed or stored or sent as email or whatever else you wish there.
Basic Syntax:
  Just a starter. The perl script involved here only echoes the data it receives.
  handling parameters The perl script involved here lists the received name value pairs.
  writing data to a file

  Send an eMail from a Shocklet
A Shockwave sending data to a perl-script  which in turn gives them to unix's sendmail to send them via eMail.

    This thingee is meant as an server based equivalent to the local setpref/getpref commands available in shockWave's netLingo
  More info and a ShockLet to test it: webPrefs




  To store and retrieve a highscore-table for a ShockLet both lingo to send, fetch, format and display the HighScore and a cgi to store the data on the server are needed.
  There is a detailed docu and testpage of the perls action: docu
