Fellow monks,

I encountered a strange problem while writing a CGI script for a site I'm developing. Here's the scoop:

print header, start_html (-title => 'Welcome to 0.0.0.0!', Link ({-rel => 'stylesheet', type => 'text/css', href => + 'style.css'}), base ({-href => 'http://0.0.0.0/cgi-bin/dir/'}), ), body ({-vlink => 'black'})

The preceeding causes the proceeding:

Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML Basic 1.0//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml-basic/xhtml-basic10.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="en-US"><head><title>T +he POSIX Network</title> </head><body <link href="style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" / +>="&lt;base href=&quot;http://skeptical.no-ip.com/cgi-bin/posixnet/&q +uot; /&gt;"><body vlink="black" />,

As you can see, it appears as the opening body tag is not being closed, and the tag delimters are converted into their counter-equivalent (whatever that means) [&lt;, &gt;, &quot;]

Any explanation of what is going on will be helpful.

Regards,
Dusk

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.
