rootkidd has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Ok, I am currently building a webtool for my work. I have just started to use perl ( which I love) but I am having trouble getting data from one file to another. I have a cgi main page and a script on another page that takes the data and submits it to a database. The trouble is I need to then get the time the second page was submited from the second page onto the first page. I am sure I need to add something like
$date = "main.pl";
open (FILE, "< $data") || die "$!";
$timestamp = $time;
I need to get the timestamp from the second page to be appended to a field in the first page. Im not asking for you to tell me how to do it step by step but any information would be great.
Thanx alot :)
Ohh, I have only been using perl for 3 weeks or so :(
