CGI Help Guide
Web Programming with Perl

Don't mix the OO and function oriented interface of CGI for no good reason.

This is an example I use often to test cgi upload scripts.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w #!C:/perl/bin/perl -w use CGI::Carp qw( fatalsToBrowser ); use CGI; #use CGI 2.7; # the minimum acceptable version is 2.7 in my book use strict; my $query = new CGI; print $query->header, $query->h1("VERSIOn $CGI::VERSION"), $query->h1("POST MAX $CGI::POST_MAX "), $query->h1(" DISABLE_UPLOADS $CGI::DISABLE_UPLOADS "), $query->start_multipart_form(); print $query->filefield(-name=>'uploaded_file', -default=>'starting value', -size=>50, -maxlength=>80); print $query->submit(),$query->end_form(); print $query->hr(); if($query->upload('uploaded_file')) { my $fh = $query->upload('uploaded_file'); print "<PRE>Filename: $fh \n"; print "Size: ".(-s $fh)."\n\n"; print while <$fh>; # idiomatic print "</pre>"; }
If this does not work or reveal why not (old/broken version of CGI.pm, disabled uploads ...), then you need to check your web server configuration (disabled/limited at server level).

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
