See my column on that.

    Thanks for all the help, people. In order not to violate Merlyn's copyright I am not going to repost his code here, but I wonder whether perhaps his article contains a typo. Line 55 reads
    "=55= my $out = IO::File->new($DIR_html,"w") or
    Shouldn't this line actually be
    "=55= my $out = IO::File->new($URL_html,"w") or
    If someone could verify the correct code for me I would appreciate it.
      No, $URL_html is the view from the browser. You're doing a unix file open, so it needs to be the view from the Unix side, $DIR_html. That's explained in the column. You did read the column, right?

        Yes, Merlyn, but I became confused and not as a result of anything you wrote.

        In fact, you do say in the article "URL_html contains the same name as $DIR_html, but mapped into the webserver's space so that we can redirect the client's browser to the results file."

        The lesson here is that every static web page has a dual nature. It possesses a physical path in the file system, and it possesses a URL under the http protocol.

        Clearly, it would have been a mistake for me to attempt to try to pass a URL to IO::File->new, which is what my proposed "correction" would have done.
