    not actually Perl related, it's javascript related, and it won't run with JavaScript disabled browsers... your best bet is to use a submit button, other wise, add this to the input tag:

    onClick = "self.location='your_perl_script.pl?with=possible&parameters +=passed';"

[robby_dobby]: marto: Oh, I see you're from an even colder north :-)
[robby_dobby]: marto: Ldn, right now
[marto]: icy here today, snow on the hills
[Corion]: Oh yes, Friday!
[Corion]: Last day at $work before 3 weeks of vacation (well, not that I'd be really travelling, but no-work-time ;) )
[robby_dobby]: marto: yeah, I'd eventually visit Glasgow some day - just to visit the home town of GHC :-)
[robby_dobby]: Corion: Oh, that's awesome! Your timing is perfect enough to see all hell break loose when you get back at work :P
[marto]: well, let me know in advance, I'll buy you a pint :)
[Corion]: robby_dobby: No, I'm returning in the second workweek of January. The main hectic parts are in the first days after the start of the new year
[robby_dobby]: marto: and, I'm not sure I'd be around here long enough for YAPC::EU
