Hi All:

I am having a problem with a particular script that is supposed to receive a string from a business partner, alter the string and return it to them, giving the 200 OK at each step.

They have told me that, "I guess what is happening is that since you've configured your script to return a 500 ERR response that our server continues to POST. Our server POSTs until you return a 200 OK".

I don't see how I have configured my script to return 500 ERR (or *ANYTHING* for that matter). The code in question is below.

Any/all help is greatly appreciated.

#read the post from partner system and add 'cmd' read (STDIN, $query, $ENV{'CONTENT_LENGTH'}); $query .= '&cmd=_notify-validate'; # post back to partner system to validate use LWP::UserAgent; $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new; my $req = HTTP::Request->new(POST => ''); $req->content_type('application/x-www-form-urlencoded'); $req->content($query); my $res = $ua->request($req); # split posted variables into pairs @pairs = split(/&/, $query); $count = 0; foreach $pair (@pairs) { ($name, $value) = split(/=/, $pair); $value =~ tr/+/ /; $value =~ s/%([a-fA-F0-9][a-fA-F0-9])/pack("C", hex($1))/eg; $variable{$name} = $value; print STDERR "$name => $value\n"; $count++; }

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
