Hi Charles, My system have perl 5.001, and somehow when i run your code i get error.
My best recommendation would be to upgrade to a more modern perl. I have my domain name on a server that refuses to upgade past 5.003, though, so I understand that may not be possible for you. I am sure they will understand when I move my domain next month.
Unfortunately, I have never programmed in perl below 5.003, so I can only guess what is happening. You might try posting your question again as a new question. Title it as "Need to run this in perl 5.001" or something. There should be some others who are familiar with that version. You may as well explain in your message why it is not possible to upgrade your perl version. If you can get the version number of CGI.pm installed on your system, people will find that helpful too.
In an effort to save face, perhaps I can help with the CGI.pm version info. In the CGI version I have this works:
I'm sorry. It never occurred to me to find out which perl version you were using. I was recently admonished by crazyinsomniac for doing something similar.
