The World-Wide Web (WWW) changes the way people retrieve information from the Internet. The Web is regarded as a public information system which offers access to the network community with the client/server protocol Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). The Web uses client interface programs (browsers), hypertext and multimedia techniques to make it easy for anyone to roam, browse, and contribute to the information base. However, most information available on the Web is read-only, frozen messages. The introduction of HTML Fill-out Forms and Common Gateway Interfaces changes this situation. In this thesis we explore supplying dynamic information to users through the Web. We build an environment on the Web using CGI and HTML forms. This environment uses forms to let the user interact with the Web server, and generates text, pages and hyper links on the Web based on the users' requirements. This environment is accessible to all authorized users and the information in it is changeable. An changes are visible immediately to all users. Applications of the environment are described.
