Abigail,

Please read the specs if you want to do it by hand and right. There is quite more to be remitted, eg. the HTTP Status code, which in this case would be "302", which means MOVED. No, I don't think that using CGI.pm would be overkill (what about tachyon's suggestion for a light weight module instead?), it just helps you to have easy acces to teh Interface without knowing each little detail. Additionallly it helps you to protect your server against attacks very easily.

Another hint on CGI's redirection, the name for the parameter is "uri" not "location", eg.

print redirect(-uri=>"http://www.perlmonk.org/", -nph=>1, -cookie=>$cookie)
Please study what the output is to see what has to be remitted.


Have a nice day
All decision is left to your taste

    We are talking CGI here, not HTTP. A Location header is the proper CGI response, it's up to the web server to turn the CGI response into an HTTP response.

    You aren't terminating your emitted lines with a CR LF either - the server takes care of such details.
