It's a long message because the script probably contains use diagnostics.

Creating a CGI object will have no effect here. The script will be using

use CGI qw(:standard);

instead of just

use CGI;

This imports the functions into your symbol table and means that you don't need to create a CGI object (actually the module does it for you behind the screens). This is a far easier way to use and seems to be the way that most people recommend these days.

If you are going to use the CGI object interface to, then please don't use the new CGI syntax as there are subtle dangers with it as noted in The Perl Cookbook and Object Oriented Perl. It is far better to use syntax like CGI->new.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
