in reply to Content-type: text/html

The first line of our CGI script must be "Content-Type: text/html" and the print statement must have 2 \n characters:

One to terminate the current line and the second to produce the require blank line between CGI header and data.

Update: Sorry

    This has nothing to do with their problem. If they remove line printing the header, which is what they are reporting, they get an error. Use a proper framework for dealing with CGI (be it CGI or a 'modern' web framework), stop worrying about manually printing headers.

    Update: Also, printing the header does not have to be the first line of code.

[james28909]: yep, i am scraping a websites date/time stamp from an article. none of that is relevant though because the strings i get are as expected. the returned data from the website is the list of @weekdays
[james28909]: i need to convert those @weekdays to an numerical date based off of scalar localtime
[james28909]: i have thught about this and though about it lol
[james28909]: also remember, that if 'Today' is may 1, then Yesterday is not may 31 lol
