Hi,

I am an EE major, and my knowledge of CS is limited. So, I need some help from you.

Purpose:
When I search and find some good pages from online, I add them to my Favorites (part of Internet Explorer) from my PC. If I use any other PC, at work for example, I couldn't remember the addresses I saved to my PC's Favorites.

Therefore, I am thinking of writing a code, like HTML or Javascript, for my webpage with search engine so that any time I find a good site, I can save that location (URL address) and write it to my page as my OWN favorite directly. I would go to online and retrieve them out from my webpage on any other PC than my own PC.

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

Sincerely,
Mike P

So you're trying to write a page that accepts text (URLs) and adds them, in parsed form, to a page. Right?

Do you know HTML and some scripting language like Perl?

Yes, kind of. I want to save the current page's URL to a page, so that next time I can retrieve this site via my web from any PC. If I save it to the Internet Explorer Favorites, I only find it on the same PC.

I know HTML pretty good, and some other languages, such as Visual Basic, C++, and a litle of javascript. Honestly, I don't know anything about Perl.

Thanks for your help!

Do you have a web host? How will you put the site online?

Here's a thought -- you could get a Google page and just paste in links as needed.

Does your host let you use scripts? Do you have a cgi-bin directory?
