stuffy has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Before anyone rips me for not using CGI, I want to let it be known that I am unable to use CGI for this application due to the server I will be using it on. I am using CGI::CARP on the server I am testing it on to try to find my problems. I am trying to Post some information to the CGI, but I get a software error. It appears if I am not reading the Post correctly. The form is located stuffy's form and the code is below
#!/usr/bin/perl use CGI::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser); read (STDIN,my($temp), $ENV{'CONTENT_LENGTH'}); my (@pairs) =split(/&/,$temp); my($item) = ""; foreach $item(@pairs) { my($key,$content) =split (/=/, $item, 2); $content=~tr/+/ /; $content=~s/%(..)/pack("c",hex($1))/ge; my($fields{$key})=$content; } print "Content-type: text/html\n\n"; print "<HTML>\n"; print "<HEAD>\n"; print "<TITLE>This is a test of the stuffy perl network</TITLE>\n"; print "</HEAD>\n"; print "<BODY>\n"; print "$fields{tool}\n"; print "$fields{month}\n"; print "$fields{date}, $fields{month}\n"; print "</BODY>\n</HTML>";

I'm sure this is an easy problem, just something I'm overlooking. If so, please go easy on me, I'm a newbie.
