in reply to HTML Form not workin

cgi-bin is for cgis not htmls -- this is how your webserver is configured (everything in cgi-bin is cgi not html ) -- this is not related to perl -- its kind of a FAQ (apache)

Copy/paste from Re: To call a .pl file when a button is pressed on a GUI created using Perl CGI (webserver) for the links below

Its simple, you need a webserver

Why? Because webpages and CGI needs a webserver, thats how it works

Its weird that so many folks manage to create a GUI using Perl CGI without understanding this

learn about the internet,Web Programming: For Beginners, to get an overall picture of how the internet works, how tcp/ip, sockets, html, ajax, all fit together....

See also Mojolicious::Lite +and jQuery +AJAX + Mojo::Template

And a copy-pasta for you:)

Also, there are checklists for that , Basic debugging checklist , brian's Guide to Solving Any Perl Problem, CGI Help Guide , Troubleshooting Perl CGI scripts

Yes, work through these checklists, when you find a problem on the list, use a solution from the list, when you find a problem not on the list (rare), post the error message and problem description here

brian's Guide to Solving Any Perl Problem, CGI Help Guide , Troubleshooting Perl CGI scripts

So examine your server configuration and compare to https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/howto/public_html.html#cgi / Apache Tutorial: Dynamic Content with CGI

[GotToBTru]: i am satisfied with the default settings turning the seemingly random formatting into something reliable
[Corion]: GotToBTru: Yeah, I started a quick(ly implemented but slowly running) implementation of a program that would guess the "best" configuration (that is, least amount of changes) from my code, but then found that it stops parsing the source as soon as it ..
[GotToBTru]: sadly, it can't do anything about this
[Corion]: ... encounters sub foo($bar,$baz) {, which is something I like nowadays
[Corion]: GotToBTru: Yeah, that stuff is hard to do away automatically ;)
[GotToBTru]: yeah, you mentioned it could not handle signatures
