If you want it to be permanent, you NEED server side scripts/databases, but I think you might be able to do it with javascript, not sure how JS access the POST variables tho.

B_heyer is correct. In order for it to be permanent, you will need a database. If you just want it to be temporary, it can be done with javascript, but the viewer will only see the results once.

I think that if you took a few moments and posted more detail about specifically what you are trying to accomplish you may get an answer that could work for you.

You can also accomplish this with just CGI (for user only display) or CGI / PHP + flatfiles if you don't have DB access.
Why are you trying to avoid using a DB? It makes life soo much faster :)

Well, if using your computer is a problem (at least being online), you might want to just head over to amazon.com or to your local bookstore and take a look at what they have to offer as far as programming books on cgi / SQL / what ever else you are interested in. That way you can read about them, practice them a bit offline, and then use your online time to finalize what you have so far.
I personally read guides online, so I haven't purchased any books...so I'm at a loss as to what to suggest as far as titles and authors go. I'm sure someone else out there knows a few good ones to look at first..

no idea about mysql, but from what ive heard, CGI Perl is the way to go. i suggest picking up the books CGI 101, CGI 201, Sam's Learn Perl in 24 hours, and Perl and CGI for the world wide web, by elizabeth castro. those are some VERY helpful books. start out on CGI 101 and move to CGI 201, then go to sams perl then use perl and cgi for the world wide web as a reference.
