Sounds like you've got a misunderstanding.

Point the form you are submitting to the cgi script you want to run. E.g. <form action='foobar.cgi' method='post'>

Then make the script parse the form inputs and print out an HTML page. E.g.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w # this is foobar.cgi use strict; # untested use CGI; my $cgi = new CGI; print $cgi->header, $cgi->start_html; print "You entered " . $cgi->param('form_input_name') . "<br>"; print $cgi->end_html; exit;

No need to use system. dave hj~

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
