You seem to be a bit confused about how all the parts fit together. Your code is really perl pidgin HTML.

The plain old HTML would look something more like:

<FORM METHOD="POST" ACTION="foo.cgi"> <INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="foo"><P> <INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="bar"> <INPUT TYPE="submit"> </FORM>

The HTML could either be generated by a script or reside in a static file somwhere.

Here's some code that prints a form and any results of previous submits. I didn't list a form action, becuase it defaults to the page it reside in.

#!perl use CGI; use strict; my $q = new CGI; print $q->header(), $q->start_html(), $q->h1('Print some input.'), $q->startform(), $q->textfield('foo'), $q->p(), $q->textfield('bar'), $q->submit(), $q->endform(); # Print w/ space print $q->param('foo').' '.$q->param('bar'); # You can't use "" to in +terpolate param(), it's a function call, not a variable. print $q->p(); # Print w/o space print $q->param('foo').$q->param('bar'); print $q->end_html;

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.
