in reply to System commands using CGI

You are trying to run who with a single argument >>/var/www/cgi-bin/new.txt while STDOUT redirection is done by shell and who does'nt use this argument as you might think (see who). Run system("who >>/var/www/cgi-bin/new.txt"); instead (so shell will catch the >>) or use IPC::Run (it can do redirection by itself).
Sorry if my advice was wrong.

[Discipulus]: new $workstation is arrived: SSD 250, sata 1TB, 16G RAM, only i5 CPU.. seems a good one: guess what first user installation will be?
[Corion]: Discipulus: Notepad++, or Perl ;)
[marto]: xubuntu or lubuntu
[Corion]: :-D
[marto]: my desktop is a core2 duo, 120GB SSD, 4GB RAM, boots to (GUI) login in less than 10 seconds from cold start
[Discipulus]: mah, winbuntu 10...
[marto]: whent he boys start school I'll build myself as new machine, ryzen based
[Corion]: marto: That's cool! I think my (home) desktop spends 30 seconds in the BIOS...
[Corion]: marto: Heh - currently they seem promising, but I think I'll stay with nVidia+Intel for the time being, as I've been bitten too often by bad AMD drivers
Discipulus is (still?) not a big fan of notepad++
