Perl scripts secure? Member areas / protecting cgi scripts
I ask this because I'm setting up a members area on my site and know very little about PHP, except Perl does what I want :)
I've been along to cgi-resourse.com and looked at many password protection scripts and have come to the conclusion that a script called Protect.pl best suits my needs. http://www.maze.se/freeware/
Can anyone tell me if by using such a script a site will be secure, so that non member will not be able to access my members area?
If not what precautions can I take to make it a bit more bullet proof bearing in mind I can't programme.
I've also read somewhere you can password protect cgi scripts....?
