I'm confused by some of your terminology. When you say you have scripts, do you mean that each is invoked by a separate user request? Or are you using do or require or some other method to accomplish things in the same request?

If the former (which I suspect to be the case), you may not be getting the data because you're not passing it as form or query string parameters. Just a guess, though your redirect appears to be okay.

To explain the new() call, you have to know a little bit about object oriented programming. An object is a bundle of data that has associated behavior. That's it. The data, in this case, is the data from the user request. The behavior are subroutines like redirect() and param().

When you call new(), the CGI module grabs the data and performs a little magic to make an object, then returns that to you. If you call new() again within the same process, you'll run into trouble -- the existing data has been used up to create the first object.

Does that make more sense? That's why I'm a little confused by your terminology.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
