I see. :|. In order to learn Python better I translated this Perl/CGI program -
to bottle.py ( https://bottlepy.org/docs/dev/ ) and I chose it instead of Flask
because it seemed easier to deploy on my web hosting. I don't know whether it
is better than Flask, but it was adequate for my needs, and you may find it
better as well.

Here is the source of the result:

Note that I have only really scratched the surface with micro web frameworks.
