You should first check if the match succeeds, then do the assignment. Something like:
die "Horribly" unless param 'firstname' =~ /^([a-zA-Z])+$/; my $u_firstname = $1; die "Horribly" unless param 'lastname' =~ /^([a-zA-Z])+$/; my $u_lastname = $1;

As for answer 2, a needs to pass its information to b, and b needs to pass that information to c, in whatever form is most convenient to you. Either encoded in the URL (could be in the path, could be in the query (which is what happens if a browser does a GET form request)), or in the body of the request (which is what happens if a browser does a POST form request). Or you could use smoke signals if you have a fire and a smoke receiver.

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.
