TYPE = SUBMIT

SUBMIT creates the "Submit" button which sends the form in to the CGI. In its simplest form, you can use SUBMIT and no other attributes for the <INPUT ...> tag:

this code produces this
<FORM ACTION="../cgi-bin/mycgi.pl">

name: <INPUT NAME="realname"><BR>
email: <INPUT NAME="email"><P>

<INPUT TYPE=SUBMIT>
</FORM>
name:
email:

You can customize the text used for the button using the VALUE attribute:

this code produces this
<FORM ACTION="../cgi-bin/mycgi.pl">

name: <INPUT NAME="realname"><BR>
email: <INPUT NAME="email"><P>

<INPUT TYPE=SUBMIT VALUE="Send It!">
</FORM>
name:
email:

<FORM ACTION="../cgi-bin/mycgi.pl">
