mt2k has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

This is a pretty easy (for you) and dumb question, but...
How can I check the value of a checkbox after an html for is submitted.
Shouldn't I be able to go ($input contains my html form content:
if ($input{'checkbox1'} eq "on") {

I have even tried:
if ($input{'checkbox1'} ne "") {
Help me!!!
