I have a rather basic "write the form info into a
text file on the server script." It's working fine
on Win98SE/Apache 1.3.12/Perl5.005_3. Then I copy it
up to the server and that's where the fun begins.
Server info = RedHat7.0/Apache 1.3.12/Perl 5.6.0.
I'm using CGI.pm; calling it like this (Lincoln's book,
page 38, 1st ed.):
use CGI qw(:cgi-lib);
Running at the command line I get the follwing error:
bash: persinfo.cgi: line 10: syntax error near unexpected token
bash: persinfo.cgi: line 10: `use CGI qw(:cgi-lib);'
So I use single quotes like in Lincoln's book (page 26) like this:
use CGI ':cgi-lib';
Now I get the following errors:
bash: use: command not found
bash: persinfo.cgi: line 12: syntax error near unexpected token `&R'
bash: persinfo.cgi: line 12: `&ReadParse;'
I do have other cgi scripts working fine on this site,
I've saved as UNIX in UltraEdit, FTPd as ascii, chmod'd to
755. Path to perl is correct. Really hoping this isn't
something obvious and I'm just wasting y'all's time.
PS - the whole script is available at
PPS - on the digest, so a CC would be appreciated.
