( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Let's remove for a moment the additional confusion that CGI introduces. And then let's fix those syntax errors that are preventing your code from even compiling. Now we can look at your script like this:

use strict; use warnings; my $command = do{ local $/ = undef; <DATA> }; $command =~ m/(!\w+\s?.+?)(?=!\w)/simg; if( $command eq "" ) { print "Add a command, man!\n"; } else { if( $command =~ /^\!Book/ ) { print "Found a Book\n\n"; } elsif ( $command =~ /^\!Number/ ) { print "Time to log a phone number\n\n"; } print "Command has the following in it : $command and was started + at \n"; printf "Time %s\n", scalar(localtime); print "Command 1 is $1\n"; print "And Command 2 is $2\n\n"; print "Command 3 is $3\n\n"; print "\n"; } __DATA__

Now what input should we be considering? What exactly would go under "__DATA__"? And then next, tell us what exact output you want to see (wrap that in a separate set of code tags).

Once we know those two variables, we'll have a better chance of being able to help.
