You should probably consider "use strict" and #!/usr/bin/perl -w. For a web script you should investigate -T as well.

You should probably consider using the wonderful CGI functions that make HTML happen for you (your code becomes a lot more readable as a Perl script when you do this). This would also allow you to do away with print_start_page and print_page_end.

The sub valid_form does not appear to be properly closed-- although you have an extra } hanging off the end of the script, which will close it in order to prevent compiler warnings.

As others have noted, your indentation style is a little obscure-- I suggest finding an editor (see Outside Links) that will automatically assist you in this. I use emacs on both Linux and Windows and find it to be an excellent cross-platform tool.

Finally, my personal preference would be to replace &subroutine with subroutine() for subroutine calls and to consistently parenthesize all function calls for readability: push( @my_array, $my_new_value );. YMMV.

    [Corion]: Hi marto!
    [Corion]: Oooh - finally, I can say no lazy; :)
    [Corion]: But it's another The::Net incarnation, too sad ;)
    [Corion]: WTF? There is a dev release of Danga::Socket?! I thought that module died a long time ago?! According to its changes, the last release was in 2008 ;)
    [Corion]: (and Brad Fitzpatrick long since moved on to Go ;) )
    [Corion]: But who am I to worry about necrocpan - I'm revisiting my online banking module, and also I'll somewhat revive WWW::Mechanize:: Firefox, at least if the test suite passes under the Waterfox browser ...
    [Corion]: Maybe I should look through my CPAN releases and revisit them in order of last release and think about what to do with the modules :)
