in reply to How to view all files in the directory using CGI

Which part are you having problems with - reading the directory? looping through the files? forming the correct URL from the filename? creating the html link with a template? displaying the web page?

Whether it's homework or not, if you don't try something and tell us where you are stuck, we can't help.

    you are absolutly right! :o), sorry if did not read you sooner
    I have been working on some code, as far as now it show me only on /cgi-bin/ folder the file I want, but I like to change it to something like a server folder but for know just C:/files/err folder for now, I can display it on the Firefox browser, but if I click a link to the file is giving me an error, but i want a dialog to say if you open it or save it to disk. heres the code :
    #!c:/perl/bin/perl.exe use strict; use CGI; my $list = new CGI; my $fileDir = "./"; my @files; opendir DIR, "$fileDir" or die "Can't open $fileDir $!"; @files = grep { /\.(?:txt|err|csv)$/i } readdir DIR; closedir DIR; print $list->header("text/html"), $list->start_html("Archivos in $fileDir"), $list->p("Estos son los archivos de $fileDir"); foreach my $file (@files) { print $list->p( $list->a({-href=>$file}, $file) ); } print $list->end_html;
      If your only problem is reading the right directory,then all you need to do is change the line that sets $filedir to:
      my $fileDir ='c:/file/out';
      You'll also need to figure out what relation there is between that directory and a reachable URL path.
