RE: Netscape or Perl error?
Message ID:
Hi Dave,

My apologize for not getting back to the list sooner.  I have figured
out exactly what my problem was.  I didn't add the following into my
HTML code...

$nameofscript = "";

<form method="post" action="$nameofscript">

Netscape didn't automatically use the script it was executing.  Ohh
well... at least my script is *finally* cross platform :).

I'm probably way off here, but are you ending the name of your
script with .cgi?
