Good day all i am learning CGI using perl and i developed simple script that redirect a user based on form selection to a given website. the code follows below.
if($query->param('op') eq "ds")
<form action=\"redirect.pl\" method=\"post\" >
<legend>Kindly select a website to visit</legend>
<strong>Select a website form the list:</strong>
<input type=\"hidden\" name=\"op\" value=\"ds\" >
<input type=\"submit\" name=\"submit\" value=\"Browse the web\">
The issue here is the code does not redirect the user to the selected website it gives this respond code on the browser.
Status: 302 Found Location: www.sedocaonline.com
Please i kindly need your assistance and comments thanks in advance.
