in reply to CGI Question: Getting and saving form parameters

Well if you are using param() from the CGI module, then readin the POST data will probably screw something up. Try this:
use CGI qw( param ); ... sub save_information { my $text1 = param('text1'); my $text2 = param('text2'); open(INFO, ">>testing123.txt"); # Open for appending print INFO "$text1 , $text2\n"; close (INFO); print <<END; <HTML> <BODY> <P><H1><B>Thank you for saving your file...</B></H1><P> </BODY> </HTML> END }
If that doesn't fix it, then post your HTML form that is doing the submitting and the problem could be in there.
