I am writing a script to upload files to a server usinf CGI.pm.
My problem is that the parameters doesn't get passed to the cgi if I use the start_multipart_form method.
When I just use start_form(), everything works fine, except the file doesn't want to upload. As soon as I change it to start_multipart_form(), none of the name/value pairs gets sent, or I am not reading them correctly.
Snippet from form script:
Snippet from upload.cgi:
use CGI qw/:standard/;
$| = 1;
$query = new CGI;
$month = $query->param("month");
$year = $query->param("year");
$magazine = $query->param("magazine");
When I print these values, they are all undefined. When I change the form encoding by using startform(), everything works perfectly but I can't upload the file.
I have searched everywhere, but can't seem to find anything.
