( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
You have a misplaced body tag which is nonsensical in the start_html context Try this program (note that it doesnt send xhtml).

(Tested on solaris with perl5.0503)

Script:

#!/usr/bin/perl
use CGI;
use strict;
my $p = new CGI;
print $p->header;
print $p->start_html(-title=>'Welcome to 0.0.0.0!',
                     -author=>'ronan@hackmare.com',
                     -base=>{href => 'http://0.0.0.0/cgi-bin/dir/'},
                     -meta=>{'keywords'=>'pharoah secret mummy',
                               'copyright'=>'Hackmarish Things Happening'},
                     -style=>{'src'=>'/styles/style1.css'},
		     -dtd=>1,
                     -BGCOLOR=>'blue',
		     -vlink => 'black');
print $p->p('Is this what you want?');
print $p->end_html;

Returns:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML//EN">
<HTML><HEAD><TITLE>Welcome to 0.0.0.0!</TITLE>
<LINK REV=MADE HREF="mailto:ronan%40hackmare.com">
<BASE HREF="http://localhost/perlmonk.pl">
<META NAME="keywords" CONTENT="pharoah secret mummy">
<META NAME="copyright" CONTENT="Hackmarish Things Happening">
<LINK REL="stylesheet" HREF="/styles/style1.css">
</HEAD><BODY BGCOLOR="blue" VLINK="black"><P>Is this what you want?</P></BODY></HTML>

This code was adapted from the CGI.pm html POD

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.
