This is a down and dirty example. You should taint the data in production. Here is my example.

HTML file

<html lang="cs"> <head> </head> <body> <form action="new6.pl"> <input type="checkbox" name="field" value="Red"> Red<br> <input type="checkbox" name="field" value="Blue"> Blue<br> <input type="checkbox" name="field" value="Green"> Green<br> <input type="checkbox" name="field" value="Yellow"> Yellow<br> <input type="submit"> </form> </body> </html>

Perl Code

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use CGI qw/:standard :html4/; use CGI::Carp qw ( fatalsToBrowser ); my $query = new CGI; print $query->header(); &logit($0." has started" ); &logit("======================="); &logit($0." ".query_string()); my @values = $query->param('field'); my $ColorCount=@values; print "Colors Selected: ".$ColorCount."<br>"; foreach my $item (@values) { print "Colors: ".$item."<br>"; } exit;

Output

Colors Selected: 4 Colors: Red Colors: Blue Colors: Green Colors: Yellow

I hope this helps

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
