valavanp has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I need to store the values from cgi output file to a pdf file. I am able to do that, but my problem is the pdf file name should be of the name which i give in the header part, but it's taking the script file name. Can anyone tell me how to do that. Below is the code which i give it in my script file. Thanks Monks for your valuable suggestion and regret if there is any discrepancies caused.

The file name is Script.pl

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use CGI; my $query=new CGI; my $mimetype='application/pdf'; my @a="test test test"; print $query->header(-expires=>'now', -type=$mimetype, -disposition=>" +inline:filename=sample.pdf", -filename=>'sample.pdf'); print @a;

    print $query->header(-expires=>'now', -type=$mimetype, -disposition=>" +inline:filename=sample.pdf", -filename=>'sample.pdf');

    In addition to Joost's reply, I also notice that you have some ='s instead of =>'s, which should issue an error. I deduce that you either did not run the code or more probably retyped it. Which shows why it is a good practice not to, but to copy and paste it instead.
