There is no CGI->html() function, as far as I know. You would have to do what Sinistral did, with sending headers and the complete HTML document. Also, when writing web applications, a good tip is to use CGI::Carp, like so:

use strict; use warnings; use CGI::Carp qw( fatalsToBrowser ); #Comment out when you release. use CGI; my $q = new CGI; print $q->header( "text/html" ), $q->start_html( "Status" ), $q->h1( "Status is ". $q->param( "StatusFilterSelect" ) ), $cgi->end_html();
~Thomas~ I believe that the source code to life is written in Perl :-)

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