    OK time for some lower level debugging. To check that the info is coming through to your upload script OK replace it with this:

    #!/usr/bin/perl read(STDIN,$buf,$ENV{'CONTENT_LENGTH'}); print "Content-Type: text/html\n\n"; print $buf;

    This will print the raw post data to screen. You should see something like

    blah blah ..... ------------------------2325446af455 name1 value1 ------------------------2325446af455 name2 value2 ------------------------2325446af455 ....

    This is how the raw data is sent when you use form encoding. The --xxx is the boundary. Anyway you should be able to see your form data (name/value pairs) plain as day. If it is there then would seem broken, if not it is your form.




      tachyon, thanks a lot for your help

      Here is the output:

      d_file"; filename="test.txt" Content-Type: application/mac-binhex40 This is a test text file. This time with more data. -----------------------------32052533347522 Content-Disposition: form-data; name="Upload" Upload -----------------------------32052533347522--
      The data is there, but the raw data doesn't all seem to be getting through.

      It looks like some of the file is being sent, but not the rest of the POST data.

      What bothers me mostly is that I don't get the same buffer data displayed every time I run it.
      Sometimes all I get is this:

      Thanks for all your help so far. I have been trying to debug everything, but don't seem to get anywhere. I used perl -w, but don't get any warnings. I think I'll try and reinstall next.

      My form seems to be working like it should. With the default encoding everything goes fine, and is passed like it should. With "multipart/form_data", it seems like the POST data is not all being sent.

      Any comments or stuff for me to look at would be appreciated.
