in thread Retrieving value from HTML->Javascript->Perl

Should read:
win=window.open("cgibin/getPrice.pl?textBox='+text+' ","width=250,height=240")

Nope. Not unless the CGI expects the string to arrive with single quotes around it. I suspect that the right thing to do here is to URL-encode 'textBox', via

win=window.open("cgibin/getPrice.pl?textBox=" + escape(text), "width=250,height=240")
