Could someone help me writing a web application that securely stores in
a file some information, and let people retrieve it?

It sounds very simple - let me explain : authors should be able to
maintain a metadata reference to their documentation, where they would
give for example the title, the keywords, the latest URL, additional
documentation they suggest, license (...) in a standardised way.

This metadata would be linked to a single key, for ex GWM-EN-HTML-1
would point to the 1st registered document in english, written in html.
Using a ( for ex) url, readers
could check if a newer version or a translated version is available, the
original URL, or just browse the metadata content.

Using a different URL, authors could update this metadata

I can write such an application in php/mysql (in fact I run some test
and I was satisfied by the way it worked), but the GNU machine
where it is supposed to run does not have any sql or php.

And you guess I don't know perl and text based database seem scary ;-)
