( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Yes you can.

The html that you use to create the form that you need to use can be created by CGI.pm, e.g.

#!/usr/local/bin/perl -w # script name = upload_form.cgi use strict; use CGI; $query = new CGI; print $query->header; print $query->start_html; print $query->start_multipart_form(-action=>"image_writer.cgi"); #belo +w print $query->filefield(-name=>'file'); print $query->submit(-value=>'Upload File'); print $query->end_form; print $query->end_html; exit;

Note that you have to use the start_multipart_form or else your upload will fail.

The next bit comes straight out of the docs for CGI.pm. You might consider reading them and discover the difference between the upload and param methods.

#!/usr/bin/local/perl -w # name image_writer.cgi use CGI; $query = new CGI; $file = $query->param('file'); open IMAGE, ">/tmp/image"; while ($bytesread = read($file,$buffer,1024) ) { #treat as binary $total += $bytesread; #add the bytesread to a total if ($bytesread > 2000000) { # no files larger than 2Meg, pleas +e close IMAGE; $badboy = $ENV{'REMOTE_ADDR'}; $time = scalar localtime; unlink ("/tmp/image"); #delete the file that's too large and l +og the offense (below) die "$time: $badboy tried to upload a file that was too large" +; } print IMAGE $buffer; } exit;

That's about all there is to it. If you are using a Windows web-server, you'll have to modify where the file is saved, but it should work, otherwise. (there may be some minor problems with the code, but it's sound theoretically).

I'd advise against using strict in the script that actually takes the upload, as there are some versions of CGI.pm that have problems with uploads with strict on (seems to be a problem with symbolic references or some other nonsense).

Title:
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.
