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????
<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="email@example.com"> <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 firstname.lastname@example.org # 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.
