( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I wrote this small perl code to count the visitors in my web page, I have placed it in Apache directory`s cgi-bin folder, but everything (SSI commands, XTML) is working except the perl part, it doesn`t even show up, for perl section "an error occured while processing this directive" appears, could you check the below code and tell me where I went wrong?
#!/usr/bin/perl # Program to track the number of times # a Web page has been accessed. use CGI qw( :standard ); open( COUNTREAD, "counter.dat" ); $data = <COUNTREAD>; $data++; close( COUNTREAD ); open( COUNTWRITE, ">counter.dat" ); print( COUNTWRITE $data ); close( COUNTWRITE ); print( header(), "<div style = \"text-align: center; font-weight: bold\">" ); print( "You are visitor number", br() ); for ( $count = 0; $count < length( $data ); $count++ ) { $number = substr( $data, $count, 1 ); print( { $number }, "\n" ); }
I appreciate it...

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.
