( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I want to execute a perl script and pass a parameter. In the script, I want to capture the parameter (and validate it). If not valid, then I will handle by printing a message and exiting. I have read similar petitions and suggestions and tried them, but cannot get it to work (HELP!). See below for a code snippet:
#make the call:
***Below is the snippet from myscript.cgi: #!/usr/bin/perl -w print "Content-type: text/html\n\n"; $myvalue = param("test"); print "<HTML>\n"; print "<BODY BGCOLOR=#FFFFFF>\n"; print "<CENTER>\n"; print "myvalue: $myvalue"; print "</CENTER>\n"; print "</BODY></HTML>";

In reply to passing and using param by Anonymous Monk

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.
