in reply to CGI script cannot create file.

As our anonymous monk above says, if you want to know what happened, you really should ensure you log it. using an or die clause with every open ensures you know where you failed.

As to using sudo in a CGI script DO NOT DO THAT set up a directory that the nobody user (or whatever uid your web server runs under) has write access to.

Hope that helps

[msh210]: I don't have sendmail (I'm on MS Windows), so does one of you think you can report the bug?
[shmem]: msh210: 'tis about time to tell the sad truth to perl5porters - via perlbug
[msh210]: probably whoever wrote that actually knows the truth
[shmem]: msh210: you can save the perlbug text in a file and send that via your mail agent of choice
[msh210]: hm, okay, I'll try, thanks
[shmem]: ...not as an attachment, it's probably better to c&p that into the mail body
