in thread display html file from Perl

What is your problem: Do you

  • ... want to output the HTML from the file to the terminal?
  • ... want to show a web page in a browser window?
  • Or is it something else?

Cheers, Sören

Re^3: display html file from Perl

    having constructed the HTMLfile, I want to display it via a Perl script programatically/automatically. The HTML file has a series of input forms; it is interactive as opposed to static.

      If you say "interactive", what do you think should happen if there is user interaction?

      If you want to run Perl code upon the user interaction, you will need a web server through which you ideally send the HTML data and to which you submit the form data.

      See Mojolicious::Lite or Dancer2 for a simple webserver and simple way to act upon user interaction.

      If you want something else to happen, consider describing it in more detail.

      Personally I am somewhat unclear if you know how a browser, HTML and the webserver interact.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
