in reply to How to display text in IE?

i would probably go with what the other monks suggested, but here's something simple as well. I'll assume that your text file is just that, a simple text file with line returns. to output it, try this:
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n"; print <<"EOF"; <HTML> <HEAD> <TITLE>textfile</TITLE> </HEAD> <BODY> <PRE> $textfile </PRE> </BODY> </HTML> EOF exit;
note the 'pre' tags in there. \n's at the end of lines are actually processed within those so your text file will output the way you want it to :).
