in thread Why is my CGI.pm script trying to assign data before pressing submit.

With CGI.pm you would need these:

use CGI; my $p = new CGI; my $js_func = qq| function checkform (form) { if (form.report.value == '') { alert('You need to enter a filename!'); form.report.focus; return false; } return true; } |;

Place the script in $p->start_html using -script.

print $p->start_html( -script => $js_func );

Then, when you start the form, use:

print $p->start_form(-onsubmit => 'checkform(this)');
