Ok, I followed the CGI recommendation for setting it:
$q = CGI->new(\&hook [,$sess_ref [,$use_tempfile]]);
and I get this error:
syntax error at /home/path/to/Files/file_upload_sys.data line 5, near
which is the line I showed you above...
why does that not work? $sess_ref
is the session reference to variable to use the session stuff, the CGI documetion says $data
is optional and can be the database handle, so I figured I may as well pass the session reference so it can use the session they are in, to update the status. but the error happens.
Also, inside of the hook, I have it open a temp file and write data to it, always appending it so that I can confirm it is reaching inside the hook, but nothing ever gets written and no die error is executed so I know it is just not getting executed. How could that be?
