NAME
       csvinfo.cgi - CGI program to show host information from a CSV file

SYNOPSIS
       csvinfo.cgi

DESCRIPTION
       csvinfo.cgi  is invoked as a CGI	script via the csvinfo.sh CGI wrapper.
       Based on	the parameters it receives, it	searches  a  comma-  separated
       file for	the matching host, and presents	the information	found as a ta-
       ble.

       csvinfo.cgi is passed a QUERY_STRING environment	variable with the fol-
       lowing parameters:

	  key (string to search	for, typically hostname)
	  column (columnnumber to search - default 0)
	  db   (name  of  the  CSV  database  file in $XYMONHOME/etc/, default
       hostinfo.csv)
	  delimiter (delimiter character for columns, default semi-colon)

       CSV files are easily created from e.g. spreadsheets, by exporting  them
       in  CSV	format.	You should have	one host per line, with	the first line
       containing the column headings. Despite their name, the default	delim-
       iter  for  CSV files is the semi-colon -	if you need a different	delim-
       iter, invoke csvinfo.cgi	with the "delimiter=<character>" in the	 query
       string.

Example	usage
       This example shows how you can use the csvinfo CGI. It assumes you have
       a CSV-formatted file with information about the hosts stored as $XYMON-
       HOME/etc/hostinfo.csv,  and  the	hostname is in the first column	of the
       file.

       Use with	the xymongen --docurl
	      The --docurl option to xymongen(1) sets up all of	the  hostnames
	      on  your	Xymon webpages to act as links to a CGI	script.	To in-
	      voke the csvinfo CGI script, run xymongen	with the option

		 --docurl=/cgi-bin/csvinfo.sh?db=hostinfo.csv&key=%s
