Re: CGI, uploading multiple filesby huck (Prior)

Have you checked the error.log of your server to see if there are any error conditions raised while it ran?
The only way i can see it not returning the print "<p><b>Name</b> -- $name<br><b>Email</b> -- $email<br><b>Comments</b> -- $comments<br>"; contents is if the cgi process terminated wit an error before reaching that point, like dieing because it cannot open the file.
To catch what would otherwise be a terminal error you can wrap the code in an eval block like so
the point made by pojabout use CGI::Carp 'fatalsToBrowser'; may serve to do the same thing. Or it may identify another error
ps, what do you think should be in $upload_file? what parm has the same name as of one of the files to be uploaded, not the value, its name.
