( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Greetings honorable Monks. I am submitting some information directly from one Perl program located on a local client to another Perl program located on a web server. I need to verify that this information was successfully passed to the Perl program located on a web server. The code works and submits information successfully to the web server, but I have been unable to verify this from the client side program. Example snippet of the functioning code:
use strict; use LWP::Simple; use URI::URL; my $url=url('http://www.webaddress.com/cgi-bin/XXX.pl'); $url->query_form( name => $name, address => $address, email => $email, reading => $reading, ); get($url);
This submits the information and everything works fine on the web server the way that it should. Now, the LWP::Simple docs say that the get() function returns undef if it fails. I have been unable to find a combination of code that works. Among them, after the above snippet:
if (!defined (get($url))){ print"Failed: $^E\n}
Does not work. I am sure that this is simple, however, this is my first voyage into the land of libwww-perl. Please and thank you!
