( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I am a beginner to perl but have come across a problem. I would like to pass variables back to the same script without putting them in hidden fields. Is this possible. The code I tried is below - can anyone advise me?
#!/usr/local/bin/perl ########################## use CGI qw (:standard); use CGI::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser); $q = new CGI; print $q->header; $action=$q->param(action); print $q->start_html( -TITLE=>'test,' -BGCOLOR=>'#FFFFFF'); print $q->startform('post', 'test.cgi'); print "$action"; $q->param(action,'to_be_passed_back'); $action=$q->param(action); print "$action"; print $q->submit(-name=>'submit', -value=>'submit'); print $q->endform; print $q->end_html;
Thanks P

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
