( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
As long as you've got -w and diagnostics you might as well use strict and put them to good use. Also declare your variables with my so typos will be apparent. When that is done the only error left is this enigmatic line:
die "$!";
which should just be exit so it won't try to print the empty $doc and get that nasty uninitialized value warning. Try this:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; # added use diagnostics; use CGI::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser); use LWP::Simple; my$doc; my$theURL = ''; print "Content-type: text/html\n\n"; print "The script has successfully started up.\n\n<BR><BR>"; unless($doc=get($theURL)){ print "can't get the URL"; exit; # added } print $doc; exit;
This code is tested and works. If it doesn't work for you the problem may lie elsewhere...

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.
