maybe a newbie question
I am called a perl script denoted as .cgi ( which is allowed at my ISP ,
and othere generaly work ).
The web server is Solaris 2.6. Perl version 5.004, sybperl 2.08.
my question is that whilst if i hard code the user/password, etc into my
perl script i can successfully login to a sybase 11 server, extract
valid data, and generate the html output in the script to successfully
redisplay back to my browser, If i try to use a form to post the values
i see them going into the script thru debug but it causes a server side
failure and generates a premature end of headers message in the
error_log for httpd.
I wonder if it because of the post action i am somehow losing the scope
of the request and then the httpd side has no where to send it..
sorry its curly but mistakes are just a humble way of learning!!
thanks in advance
