Passing data via POST with redirection?

by Oaks (Novice)
on Jun 28, 2004 at 07:14 UTC ( #370129=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Oaks has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I have a Perly page that receives data from a normal HTML page using a POST form. However, I want to parse that data further and send it off with a redirect to another page -- but not with the GET method.

I've been reading up on the CGI package, but I pretty much just started this all today and my brain is mush. Can someone at least point me in the right direction? Or maybe I'm not even going about this the right way? Help.

    It's in the   perldoc LWP,   look for   "post"   there.

    If you could explain a little better it would be easier to help you. Something like I want to do ABC because XYZ. I have tried DEF but that causes GHI. Doesn't work and help are generally redundant data.

    Ovid's CGI course sounds like it might make a good first stop

    cheers
