if ( system("ls -l | grep datafile.json") == 0 ) {

Sweet Jesus! Is this you trying to check whether a file exists?! You know Perl does have built-ins for checking the existence of a file...

if (-f "datafile.json") {

Using a few commodity modules from CPAN, you can make your life a lot easier...

#!/opt/lampp/bin/perl use strict; use CGI; use CGI::Carp 'fatalsToBrowser'; use File::Slurp qw< read_file write_file >; use JSON qw< from_json to_json >; use constant USER_ACCOUNT_FILE => '/opt/lampp/htdocs/datafile.json'; sub store_user_account { my ($name, $mail, $pass) = @_; my $existing_data = -f USER_ACCOUNT_FILE ? from_json(scalar read_file(USER_ACCOUNT_FILE, err_mode => 'c +roak')) : []; push @$existing_data, { name => $name, mail => $mail, pass => $pass, }; write_file( USER_ACCOUNT_FILE, { atomic => 1, err_mode => 'croak' }, to_json($existing_data), ); } sub process_cgi { my ($q) = @_; store_user_account( map { scalar $q->param($_) } qw(name mail pass), ); print $q->header('text/html'); print "<p>Finished file.</p>\n"; } process_cgi( CGI->new );
