There are many ways to do what you want, one is

#!/usr/bin/perl use CGI qw(:standard); use strict; use warnings; my $var_username = param( "USERNAME" ); my $var_password = param( "PASSWORD" ); my $url="http://host.redirectdomain.com:9999/"; my $t=1; # time until redirect activates print "Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8\n\n"; open ( FILE, "/tmp/password.txt" ) || die "The file could not be opene +d"; my $didmsg=0; while ( my $line = <FILE> ) { chomp $line; ( my $username, my $password ) = split( ",", $line ); if ( ( $var_username eq $username ) && ( $var_password eq $password + ) ) { print "$var_username, $var_password <br>"; # I will remove this in +real world print "Permission has been granted <br>"; print "<META HTTP-EQUIV=refresh CONTENT=\"$t;URL=$url\">\n"; $didmsg=1; last; } elsif ( ( $var_username eq $username ) && ( $var_password ne $passw +ord ) ) { print "$var_username, $var_password <br>"; # I will remove this in +real world print "You entered an invalid password. <br>"; print "Access has been denied. <br>"; $didmsg=1; last; } } close( FILE ); unless($didmsg) { print "$var_username, $var_password <br>"; # I will remove this in +real world print "You entered an invalid username. <br>"; print "Access has been denied. <br>"; }
Notice the use of the $didmsg flag, and "last" to terminate the read loop early

Title:
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
