Greetings Angharad,

Debugging through PM posts isn't optimum for this sort of thing, but here are a couple of ideas that come my mind:

  • Ensure the file is a UNIX file, not DOS
  • Ensure the #! line is at line 1
  • Remove the first print line and replace with one of the two following things:
    • my $cgi = new CGI; print $cgi->header;
    • use CGI qw(header); print header;
  • Run the script from the command-line and post what you get

code('Perl') || die;
