Answer: I need a script for web file uploading.
contributed by cLive ;-)

Here's a simple example script.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; # make html/forms easy to deal with use CGI; # report errors in the browser # (remove from production code) use CGI::Carp 'fatalsToBrowser'; # create new CGI object my $q = new CGI; if ( ! $q->param() ) { # first run, so present form print $q->header, $q->start_html, $q->start_multipart_form, $q->filefield('file'), $q->br, $q->submit('Upload'), $q->end_form, $q->end_html; } else { # file uploaded, so process it # read filehandle from param and set to binary mode my $filehandle = $q->param('file'); binmode $filehandle; # open file for output. Change this to suit your needs!!! open OUT, "> /path/to/local/filename" or die $!; binmode OUT; # process $filehandle { my $buffer; while ( read $filehandle, $buffer, 1024 ) { print OUT $buffer; } } close OUT; # show success print $q->header, $q->start_html, $q->p('File uploaded'), $q->end_html; }
