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

Should read:"cgibin/'+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"cgibin/" + escape(text), "width=250,height=240")

    I've just written some code almost exactly like this..but it's at work and I'm at home..and my brain is fried so can't remember the EXACT syntax I used however....

    I've found that when trying to use quotes inside a quoted string the CGI converts the ' nicely...but leave the " in and it screws it up...ALSO shouldn't there be a "+" on either side of the variable?
