As long as you've got -w and diagnostics
you might as
well use strict
and put them to good use. Also declare
your variables with my
so typos will be apparent. When
that is done the only error left is this enigmatic line:
which should just be exit
so it won't try to print the
empty $doc and get that nasty uninitialized value warning.
use strict; # added
use CGI::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser);
my$theURL = 'http://www.theredkitchen.net/';
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
print "The script has successfully started up.\n\n<BR><BR>";
print "can't get the URL";
exit; # added
This code is tested and works. If it doesn't work for you
the problem may lie elsewhere...
