You can write server side CGI-BIN programs in any interpreted or 
compiled language available on your server. The most commonly used 
languages are C, Perl and Bourne Shell. There are many repositories with 
useful scripts and include libraries available in several sites. Look 
under the CGI section in Yahoo or search for the keywords: forms, cgi.

If you decide to use Perl, there are some useful libraries and utilities 
available at:

http://www.cs.cmu.edu:8001/afs/cs/usr/rgs/mosaic/perl.html

There is also a C library at:

and a nice tutorial at:

Good Luck,
