I want to create a fun script (LOL)

What I want to do is create a script where when you type in a word (each character will have its own input field) it will return a jpg or gif, something like a word scramble.

I want to incorporate as many arrays as possible as to not have to repeat the code over and over., ie [a-z0-9] will give a return with it's exact corresponding pic.

can someone direct me to a tutorial or help out with a snippet perhaps. I know I can do it using the CGI module which will help speed up the process.

the form will be something like this:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <form method="POST" action="example1.pl">
  2. Enter word (One character per box): 
  3. <input type="text" name="field01" value="" size="1" maxlength="1">
  4. <input type="text" name="field02" value="" size="1" maxlength="1">
  5. <input type="text" name="field03" value="" size="1" maxlength="1">
  6. <input type="text" name="field04" value="" size="1" maxlength="1">
  7. <input type="text" name="field05" value="" size="1" maxlength="1">
  8. <input type="text" name="field06" value="" size="1" maxlength="1">
  9. <input type="text" name="field07" value="" size="1" maxlength="1">
  10. <input type="text" name="field08" value="" size="1" maxlength="1">
  11. <input type="text" name="field09" value="" size="1" maxlength="1">
  12. <input type="text" name="field10" value="" size="1" maxlength="1">
  13.  
  14. <input type="Submit" value="Scramble it Up!">
  15. </form>
  16.  
thanx in advance

The form you submitted looks fine, you just need to write the code to process the data from the form. Have a look at the CGI docs which will show you how to process the data. If you can't get your code working, then post the code that you have written and we will try to assist you.

Is codervods your website? I hate to acuse anyone of spamming a forum if I am not sure, but you keep recommending that one site, which I have never heard of, over and over.

Kevin's post was directed to user "jeffjustice" who did post the URL in question. If you look at his post, it says who posted it.
