Re: how to set two script sources with cgi.pm start_html

    To do this correctly you need to do something pass an arrayref for the -script argument like this:

    print $query->start_html(-script=>[ {-src=>'../assests/bwcheck.js'}, {-src=>'../assests/scroller.js'}, ]);

    This is well documented in the CGI.pm documentation for start_html.

      unfortunately this is also not working, now it outputs even no script src, i already tried it this way. really dont know out of this problem
        Which version of CGI do you have installed? What does it print? Here's what I get, on Perl 5.5.3, with CGI version 2.752.
        $ perl use CGI; my $query = CGI->new(); print $query->start_html(-script=>[ {-src=>'../assests/bwcheck.js'}, {-src=>'../assests/scroller.js'}, ]); <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML Basic 1.0//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml-basic/xhtml-basic10.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="en-US"><head><title>U +ntitled Document</title> <script src="../assests/bwcheck.js" type="text/javascript" language="J +avaScript"></script> <script src="../assests/scroller.js" type="text/javascript" language=" +JavaScript"></script> </head><body>
