( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi, I will try to write a small program which
1) get a webpage from a url
2) check some patterns or do sth.
3) display the result to user via browser.

However, I had problems dealing with the display of feedback. So I tested this small code:
#-------------------------------- #! /usr/bin/perl -w use CGI; use LWP::Simple; print "Content-type: text/html\n\n"; $url = ""; my $webpage = get($url); print $webpage; print<<_HTMLEND; <HTML> <BODY> <H1> hello </H1> </BODY> </HTML> _HTMLEND #-----------------------------------------
It does work if I run it in the console using "perl", but it is not working as a cgi program, basically I cannot display anything in the browser, even it is just a "hello" here.
Anything wrong? or my idea is wrong
Can anyone help me? Thank you<

Edit by castaway - Added code tags

In reply to about use LWP::Simple by meng

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.
