Forms allow users to enter data via form fields such as the text and password fields. We introduced forms in Chapter 18. One thing that we omitted from that chapter was a field type to allow a user to submit an entire file along with the form. The form input type “file” enables users to browse your local computer directory and select a file to upload to the Web server.
