Error reading Requestby dwatson06 (Friar)
|on Jun 26, 2002 at 19:22 UTC||Need Help??|
dwatson06 has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am trying to pass information (Post) to a CGI script on another server. When I send a request, that server is giving a '404 Not Found' error.
It appears that on the server I am sending the request to, the line feed and carriage return are read as a literal string value and not parsed properly. The server gets the Request and is not parsing the /r/n.
my $ua = new LWP::UserAgent;
my $req = new HTTP::Request("POST", "https://asite.com:443/sub/create_user.cgi HTTP/1.0\r\nContent-type:application/x-www-form-urlencoded\r\nContent-length:33\r\n\r\n<userCreate>John.Doe</userCreate>\r\n\r\n");
my $res = $ua->request($req);
Is there another way to pass a carriage return & line feed?
Am I missing a value in the handshake?
