in thread retrieving value from ajax call to cgi page

try data : { value1: 'value1' },

Here is my working test, an html page

<html> <head> <script src="jquery-2.0.2.min.js"></script> <title>test-ajax.htm</title> <script> $.ajax({ url: 'process.cgi', // The type of request. type: "get", data : { value1: 'value1' }, success: function( data ){ alert(data); $( "#value1" ).html( "<strong>" + data + "</strong>" ); } }); </script> </head> <body> <span style="background-color:yellow" id="value1">?</span> </body> </html>
and a process.cgi script.
#!perl # process.cgi use strict; use CGI; my $q = CGI->new; print $q->header; print $q->start_html, 'Data returned is '.$q->param('value1'), $q->end_html;
