peacepanda3 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

This is the error that I am getting in the apache error log file syntax error at C:/wamp/bin/apache/Apache2.2.21/cgi-bin/date.cgi line 12, near "print "</body"\r Wed Mar 14 20:26:24 2012 error client Search pattern not terminated at C:/wamp/bin/apache/Apache2.2.21/cgi-bin/date.cgi line 13.\r The code for the date.cgi file is as below
#!/usr/bin/perl # print CGI header print "Content-Type: text/html\n\n"; # now print the time print "<html> <head>\n"; print "<title>Current Date and Time</title>\n"; print "</head> <body>\n"; print "<h1>The date is now</h1>\n"; print "<p>$time = (localtime),"</p>"; print "</body>\n" print "</html>\n";
Can some one tell me what is that I am doing wrong.Thanks Ajit

    This line has misplaced quote, fix it

    - print "<p>$time = (localtime),"</p>"; + print "<p>", scalar(localtime),</p>";

    Line 11 misses a double quote.

    <font color=red">print "</body>\n" semi colon at the end of line is missing For future programming do put -w in the shebang line #!/usr/bin/perl -w so that errors will be shown to an extend

      You probably mean "warnings", not "errors".
