in reply to (OT) To open a form in a new window

This is not a Perl problem, but anyway: the method accepts a name of the new window as second parameter. This allows you to specify that window as a target for something, for example a form.

<form target="form_results" ...> ... <input type="submit" value="Go" onclick="'','fo +rm_results','...');void(0)" /> </form>

    So you're saying if I used print header, start_html('MyNewPage'); as the title of the, I'd write <input type="submit" value="Go" onclick="'','MyNewPage','...');void(0)" /> ?

      No. You're confusing the title of an HTML-Document with the name of a frame/window. It's completely irrelevant what actually prints. Everything concerning windows happens on the clientside. The HTML i wrote already did all the necessary stuff: on submit-button-click a window is created (without content) an named "form_results" and the form has the target "form_results" which causes the browser to put the response of your into that window, if he is capable of and configured for handling multiple windows.

      This has still nothing to do with Perl.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
