You should always test with data that should work. For example:
% perl example.cgi 'Submit=Go'
The other case is to be paranoid:
my $submit = $cgi->param('Submit'); if (defined($submit) && $submit eq 'Go') { do_results($cgi); }
This is probably a better idea, since someone can easily load your page sans-parameters, and if this warning were actually an error, they would get the old "500 Internal Server Error" page and then complain that your "program doesn't work" even though they are unintentionally feeding it bad data.

I'd like to take this moment to encourage you to not use ampersands on function calls. The generally accepted way of making a call is bare.

Update: Changed submit=1 to the appropriate Submit=Go per dws's suggestion. Nothing like having test values that are actually accurate.

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.
