Greetings Monks:
I am having problems redirecting using the CGI module
$q = new CGI; $q->redirect( -location=>"train1.htm");
This is not working for me. Any hints?
Thank you,

    The redirect method simply returns the text of the redirect header, you still have to print it!
    print $q->redirect("train1.htm");
    Also be sure that no other headers (Content-type, etc) are printed before this line.


      Guh... I remember making that very mistake just a month ago. So aggravating, and so embarassing when I realized that that was the problem...
