in reply to javascript variable & perl

hmm...i'm not quite clear on what exactly you need...if its setting a form variable using javascript and passing it to a perl script, then here's one way to do it
<html> <head> <script language="Javascript"> function callSubmitSub() { var objForm = document.test; var testvar = objForm.name; objForm.passedvar1.value = testvar; alert(objForm.passedvar1.value);} </script> </head> <body> <form name="test" action="test.pl" method="post" onSubmit="callSubmitS +ub();"> <input type=hidden name="passedvar1" value=""> <input type=submit value="submit"> </form> </body> </html>
this passes the value of the javascript variable into a hidden variable in the form, which in turn is passed to the perl script when the form is submitted.
htht...
