Cut-N-Paste JavaScript Home / Log It! Script

We always have the need of capturing simple information about visitors and then dumping that information into a log file. That's the task this JavaScript/Perl script is designed to perform.

More specifically, the demo on this page is configured especially for teachers to take attendance for internet assignments or classes. All it does is prompt for your name, save that name as a cookie, and then record your attendance name and date in a log file. If you entered your name and allowed it to be written as a JavaScript cookie, then try reloading the page and you will see that you do not have to enter your name a second time.

We have a simpler version of this script that will allow you to easily specify which information to capture and write to a log file on the server.
