( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Well, I think you forgot use CGI;

Your code would look (untested):

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use CGI qw/:standard/; print header; my $myvalue = param("test"); print <<EOS; <BODY BGCOLOR=#FFFFFF> <CENTER> myvalue: $myvalue </CENTER> </BODY></HTML> EOS

Note that I have replaced a bunch of your print statements by using a HEREDOC syntax. Of course, you can do it with a few prints, but it very much neater this way. Oh, and you might want to use built in CGI functions for generating HTML.. For all your CGI needs, consult CGI manual.

...And don't forget to use strict ;)

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.
