in thread checkbox problem?

Hmmmmmm... I have always passed -values an array. Either by =[‘blah,'blah'] or =@array.
my $tmp = $,; $, = "<br>\n"; print $q->checkbox_group ( -name=>'predefined', -values=>@predefined, -defaults=>param('predefined'), ), $q->submit(-name=>'submit', -value=>'preview'), $q->end_form; $, = $tmp; # return output field separator to it's original value.
Is working for me just fine. Perhaps it is only still working for backward compatibility?
I just wanted to see if any of you more knowledgeable monks had a better way.
++Zaxo and talexb for the -linebreak=>'true' bit.
When I started using, back in the day, I did actually read the manuals, perldoc.
Also for me, up until now, header always returned
For my past employer(s), upgrading software was never up to me (read: "everything had to be standard, and their standards were far behind" or "get slapped if you try to do something different/better").
I suppose this is what I get for not keeping up on my perldoc readings anyway.
I shall go now and read the latest perldoc:cgi since I am using an updated from what I am used to (xhtml, whoo, I wonder what else is changed!).

Thanks everyone for your replies.
Cheers, -xtype
