Hi all,
just need some help on my coding. I cant figure out what i'm doing wrong as far as i can see it should be working....
It s a very basic guestbook form and the cgi script seems to work but for some reason my reply page won't show up????

the form:

<html>
<head></head>
<body bgcolor="#ffffff">

<h1>A Simple Guestbook</h1>

<form method="post" action="first.cgi">

<h4>Name</h4>
<p><input name="name" type="text" size="50" 

value="Random Person">

<h4>Email</h4>
<p><input name="email" type="text"  size="50" 

value="someone@someplace.com.au">

<h4>Your Comments</h4>
<p>
<textarea name="comment" rows="3" cols="50" 

wrap="virtual">
Enter text here...
</textarea>

<p><input type="submit" value="Submit"> 
<input type="reset"  value="Clear Form">

</form>
</body></html>

the cgi script:

#!/usr/bin/perl
#   Guest book reply and storage script
#
#   Start by defining the source and target
source	reply.tpl
target	STDOUT
open	all
# Define default values for the variables
var	name	Fred Nurk
var	comment	Hello World
var	email	fnurk@csu.edu.au
# Now do the processing
form
cgi
xmlsub
#  Close the files 
close	source
# The following lines write the data to a file
source	guestbook.tpl
target	data.xml
open	all
xmlsub
close	all
#
# End of the guestbook script

If any one can help me out, it would be much appreciated.

Cheers
syd
