i never used the CGI::ReadParse() method, so i gave it a try. testing with the following minimal script it works fine - i.e. $in{antique} is set to the correct value using POST.

maybe your problem is hidden somewhere else in your code, be sure to enable warnings and use strict;

consider using cgi's new method's, when writing new code.
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; $|=1; use CGI; my $q = new CGI; use vars qw(%in); CGI::ReadParse(); print $q->header(), $q->start_html(), "The value of the antique is $in{antique}.\n", $q->start_form(), $q->textfield(-name=>'antique'), $q->end_form(), $q->end_html();

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.
