Here ya go! There are two files to create. One is called greaterNum.htm, the other is called greatestProcess.php. greaterNum.htm is the htm file that has the form to enter the two numbers. It sends the values to greatestProcess.php where it chooses the greatest number by going through an if else statement. Just look at it and if you have any more ?'s on how it works just post again.


<form action = "greatestProcess.php" method = "post">
Enter your first number!<br />
<input type = "text" name = "numOne" /><br />
Enter your second number!<br />
<input type = "text" name = "numTwo" /><br />
<input type = "submit">

Your Welcome,
Matt (A Newb to this form)


$one = $_POST['numOne'];
$two = $_POST['numTwo'];
$greaterNum = NULL;
if($one > $two) {
$greaterNum = $one;
} else {
$greaterNum = $two;
echo $greaterNum;

You're probably looking for this guy.

[EDIT: Sorry to take the steam out of your engine there, rcmatt4321. It's a good script, but built-ins are always faster ('cause they're compiled) ~_^]
