in reply to html::htmldoc not working

CGI scripts are usually run as a different user (www-data etc.) HTML::HTMLDoc uses an external programme, htmldoc. Are you sure this user has permissions to run it? What do the logfiles say?

    Thanks for your reply. I guess the user has permission to run the program because the file was set to 777 mode and the program able to generate the pdf with 0 bytes. I forgot to mention in my last post that the program generated pdf,and, the problem is it did not write the pdf content.

      I did not mean your script, but the htmldoc programme (use
      type htmldoc
      in a shell to find its location).

[1nickt]: And you can still configure the system at will, on the "Small Business" site.
[Corion]: 1nickt: I bought a 2015 XPS 13, which is a very nice and shiney (and somewhat overpriced) machine, but I think it's still better priced than an Apple machine. Now it just has to hold up 10 years like the old one did ;)
