Quite honestly, I posted here as I don't have the necessary advanced skills to complete this non-profit volunteer project. Thanks again to the Perl Monks community for your feedback, suggestions and patience. I hope to find a coding solution for this Perl new.cgi program.

Read perlintro and you'll have the skills to write the solution

    I've read Perlintro, in fact, I've been hosting a mirror copy of that website for a couple of years to promote Perl among the younger generation.

    I'm an administrator of Linux servers and promote Perl applications over other languages and fads. Unfortunately, I'm not a seasoned programmer, hence the reason I'm requesting the help of the Perl Monks community. I volunteered myself for this new.cgi project to prove that it can be done in Perl, and that migration to other languages is not necessary.

      It seems to me that you've volunteered for the wrong task then. You claim you don't have the Perl knowledge necessary. I recommend that you either acquire that knowledge or pay somebody with that knowledge.

      This site is about learning Perl and helping people to learn Perl. It is not a script writing service. We expect you to do the main part of the work.

      You have been shown the tools necessary to accomplish your task but you haven't shown any effort on your part.

        Thank you for your message. Yes, that's correct, I have volunteered for the wrong task and I've stated that a few times... I'm an administrator, not a programmer. I volunteered to prevent losing a functional CGI/Perl forum to a PHP-based forum.

        Thank you for clarifying this website's objectives. My expectations was that a Perl magician could see the required code and offer a solution, after which I would have gladly donated to this website.

        Please provide a solution if you have one. For example, a person(s) or website URLs which can offer to code the solution. Thank you.
