HTML Fieldset messing up self referencing CGI?by Popcorn Dave (Abbot)
|on Feb 20, 2008 at 22:15 UTC||Need Help??|
Popcorn Dave has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I've hit a wall with this problem and I'm not sure if it's something I've inadvertently done or if CGI.pm is having a problem with generating the HTML code.
Given this pared down code snippet:
when I put in just the first paramter, it returns the HTML as I would expect, but only the first part of a possible multi part paramter. For example, if I put blah blah in the name field, after the submit just the first blah is returned in the field. However Data::Dumper shows that blah blah is passed as a parameter.
Anybody have a clue why it seems to be clipping the data there?
Update: As <a href="http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=522408>olus pointed out I didn't have the double quotes around the value, but it turns out that I didn't need the value there anyway. Apparently the input id and name pieces takes care of that. If I'm incorrect in that reasoning, please let me know.

I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code
