This should work fine. Can you try putting the absolute URL in the "action" of the form, just for testing if this works?

Testing never proves the absence of faults, it only shows their presence.

    I did (I used /public_html/cgi-bin/process.pl) and the full host path, both of those searched for pages that didn't exist. When using the one posted, it just goes to a blank white page (which is strange it seems the script would show up there) and the script doesn't run. I have also tried running the script as ".cgi" with no change in results either.

      You may be missing this in your Perl cgi script:

      print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";

      In Perl you absolutely need this as your first output string to print a HTML page.

[james28909]: yep, i am scraping a websites date/time stamp from an article. none of that is relevant though because the strings i get are as expected. the returned data from the website is the list of @weekdays
[james28909]: i need to convert those @weekdays to an numerical date based off of scalar localtime
[james28909]: i have thught about this and though about it lol
[james28909]: also remember, that if 'Today' is may 1, then Yesterday is not may 31 lol
