( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I've been mucking around trying to get dump stuff from a database to a web page. This what I came up with (I'm a win32 user - forgive me brothers):
use CGI qw(-no_debug :standard); use Win32::ODBC; $db = new Win32::ODBC("LIB"); $stmt = "SELECT * FROM Library WHERE Number > 1800"; $rc = $db->Sql($stmt); die qq(SQL failed "$stmt": ), $db->Error(), qq(\n) if $rc; print header(), start_html("Test Library"); while($db->FetchRow()) { @Data = $db->Data("Number","Title"); print "$Data[0] $Data[1]<br>\n"; } print end_html(); $db->Close();
This works fine from the command line... no problems connecting to database or with sql statement, all html codes correct and accounted for. When I invoke it in a browser I get: CGI Error... Can't call method "Sql" on an undefined value at C:\InetPub\wwwroot\cgi-bin\ line 7 Is this a Perl problem or an IIS (again, forgive me) problem? Any advice gratefully recieved.

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
