in reply to Formmail with Perl

Well there are a few things we need to know before we may guide you in the correct direction.

1) What type of server are we dealing with, UNIX or WIN32?
2) What are you trying to get in the long run?
3) What is it that you want the formMail to do?

If you are running a UNIX server then you will need to decide what sort of web server you are running ( this is assuming this is what you want the formMail for ) from that point you will know the correct place to put the formMail file. i.e. /htdocs/cgi-bin

Now if you are running a WIN32 server you will need to verify that Active Perl is installed. Yoiu may down load this from Once you have that follow pretty much the same idea as with the UNIX system and just locate the correct cgi-bin directory.

Also you will need to make sure the file is chmod 755 in order to run correctly.

[Lady_Aleena]: Why does grep(/.*$in.*/, @my_modules) work but grep { $_ =~ /.*$in.*/; $_ } @my_modules not work? What did I do wrong in the second?
[tobyink]: Why are you returning $_ n your grep block? You should return a boolean.
[tobyink]: *in your grep block
[tobyink]: You can use grep { $_ =~ /.*$in.*/; } @my_modules but why not stick to grep(/.*$in.*/, @my_modules)? (The latter is faster.)
