in thread a quick stab at a public links page

i was putting print "m00"; before and after each line until i worked out where it was stopping :) then i tried taking the line out. (with other tweaks so i could)
ill just trundle off to find out what its running, ive seen it somewhere around the site...
ok, here's what it says:
Portland web servers are based around IBM AIX and IBM RS/6000 web servers.

ok, ive added the fatalsToBrowser line (assumed it was in already, which is why i was getting *really* confused!) and get the following:

Software error:

Undefined subroutine CGI::Vars

For help, please send mail to the webmaster (support@portland.co.uk), giving this error message and the time and date of the error.

im still not really much enlightened, surely use CGI; should be sorting that?

hope you can help!

       While not certain, I suspect the server may have an older version of CGI.pm installed. Perhaps a fellow monk knows when Vars was added to CGI.pm. If you can get a look at the CGI.pm source on your server, search for the Vars subroutine. You should be able to determine the version of CGI by printing $CGI::VERSION. Install the newest version from CPAN if you can. Try a Super Search on Vars

    If all else fails you could bother the author, but wait a few days for a reply here first.

      Try to print version of CGI on your server, add:
       print $CGI::VERSION;
      And then compare version you found as installed on server with version you expected.
      Exactly this happened to me with $query->Dump() function, so now I know... ;)
