in reply to encoding URL ampersands?

& => & is part of HTML and XML's escaping scheme. URIs use a different escape mechanism. URI::Escape provides it.

my $url_param = ''; my $url = "http:/" . uri_escape($url_param);

If you are placing the constructed URL in HTML or XML, you will also need to HTML-escape the constructed URL as a whole.
