I want my perl cgi pages to be accessed by every user having an account on my linux server.Now if simultaneously many users access my cgi pages then is there a way for me to distinguish between different users so that there associated data can be loaded when they login.

Of course!

I am assuming you want to run a site like excite, where a user logs in, and then they can manipulate what is displayed on their main page.

I would create a database, that holds the user, id, pass, etc. (you could also include all of their preferences, but you may want a separate database for that.)

So your second database would hold a id, thats passed by login page, then their content will be loaded from the second database that will either 'refer' pages to include, or run scripts based on preferences.

You can do pretty much anything you cna think of. Colors, urls, quick links, email addresses, included news pages, search bars etc. . . .

You can also load a admin option for modding folders/files.
