in reply to I think this is the wrong forums but I am not sure where to ask

So you're running the program in CGI context? What does the error_log of the web server tell you?

Some hints about your code:

  • use strict and warnings; they support you with your development
  • use the CGI module to obtain the given parameters.
  • print a valid html header and a short message to STDOUT at the end of the script to prevent "internal server error", because no data was sent.

untested example

#! /usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use CGI; my $lost_file = "/FULL/path/to/lost.txt"; my $cgi = CGI->new; open LOST, '>>', $lostfile or die "open(>>) $lostfile failed: $!\n"; for my $param ( $cgi->param ) { print LOST "$param ", $cgi->param($param), "+"; } print LOST "\n"; print $cgi->header('text/plain'), "job is done.\n";

updates

  • fixed typo in code: s/->new/->param/ in head of for-loop
