Been tasked with an assignment that is kicking my butt. We have been asked
to write a py utilizing cgi to ask for simplistic web form guestbook
information (name and email). I think I am lost on whether or not my actual
py script needs to link to a cgi script or if I can do it all in a py
script. It needs to log entries to a text file and everytime I think I have
it working I go to my text file and it remains empty. I don't know if I can
post my script code in here so if I can not then my apologies forthcoming.
Any help or advice is most appreciated.
import cgi, cgitb, os
temp = """
First Name: <input type=text name=fname><br>
Last Name: <input type=text name=lname><br>
Email: <input type=text name=email><br>
path = 'c:\\file'
# Create instance of FieldStorage
form = cgi.FieldStorage()
# Get data from field 'name'
fname = form.getvalue('fname')
# Get data from field 'address'
lname = form.getvalue('lname')
# Get data from field 'email'
email = form.getvalue('email')
if not os.path.isdir(path):
e=open(path + '\\' + 'logbook.txt','a')
e.write("%s#%s#%s\n" % (fname,lname,email))
What am I doing wrong? Been working on this two weekends in a row and the
assignment is already late.
