Hi James,

Thanks for response.
Maybe I did not make my question clear. I never tried python web
programing before, so I want to start from CGI.

I read something about web framework like django, but seems it's a
little bit complicated. my task is actually very simple: get search
string from input, and then search database, print search result. I
thought CGI should be good enough to do this.

I don't have any idea about how to organize those cgi codes, so what
I'm asking is:

1. do I have to have each single file for each hyper-link? Can I put
them together? how?
2. how can I pass a db_cursor to another file? can I use db_cursor as
a parameter?

Thanks again!
