in reply to Problems sending email from Flash to Perl

My best guess (can't look at the flash, not having the program): Flash sends the requesta as a GET, while your test form uses POST.

As matija noted, you're using a hand-crafted, scary-looking parser for your CGI parameters. Guess what? It only works if the data is sent with POST.

Follow matija advice: use CGI;.

Perl is strongly typed, it just has very few types (Dan)

    Thanks for your time and your suggestion. I'll try that and other modifications and see what happens.

    Ok, I swapped out that Perl code and checked out the Flash file to make sure it was correct. Here is a screen shot of the actionscript:

    As you can see the Flash file is doing a variable POST action. It still doesn't work, although the html version of the same device, is still working and writing email addresses.

    Any other suggestions out there?

[ambrus]: oh yes, we have a pretty good example of that when they reorganized the grill place in the restaurant nearby.
[ambrus]: it now has two more people working there, and they're serving slower and more expensive.
[ambrus]: It used to be just a master cook who takes the order and puts the meat and eggs on the open grill plate table, and an assistant who removes them to a plate, adds the side dish, and gives the plate to the people in the queue, plus a cashier.
[ambrus]: Now it has five people instead of three, some sort of call number ticket system where people wait a lot for their food to get ready (it's the same kinds of grilled meat and fish on the same equipment, it won't actually fry slower),
[ambrus]: it's slow as hell, and the food costs significantly more.
[ambrus]: We no longer eat there.
