I changed my code to the following, but I get the same error.
1: #!/usr/local/bin/perl -w
3: BEGIN {
4:	$ENV{SYBASE} = "/usr/sybase";
5: }
7: use CGI qw(:standard);
8: use Sybase::CTlib;
10: my $TITLE;
11: $TITLE = "BIA Results";
12: print header, start_html($TITLE), h1($TITLE);
14: my $dbh = new Sybase::CTlib 'sa', 'oracle8', 'helix';
15: $dbh->ct_sql("use htn");
17: my $data = $dbh->ct_sql("select * from BIA");
18: my $row;
21: print hr;
22: print "
23: print "test line\n";
24: foreach $row (@$data) {
25:	print "$$row[0] - $$row[1] - $$row[2] - $$row[3] - $$row[4] - $$row[5] -
$$row[6] - 26: $$row[7] - $$row[8] - $$row[9] - $$row[10] - $$row[11]\n";
27: }
28: print "
\n"; 29: print hr; 30: print end_html; If I comment out lines 24,25,&26, I do get the proper html page created & returned. It just doesn't like how I am printing out the data results in that foreach loop for some reason. > Also, look in the server's error log for any messages. I did check the error log & it said the following: [16/Feb/1999:13:54:29] failure (15929): for host gene22797.GENE.CWRU.Edu trying to GET /cgi-bin/sah18/biares3.cgi, cgieng_scan_headers reports: the CGI program /var/www/htdocs/helix/cgi-bin/sah18/biares3.cgi did not produce a valid header (name without value: got line "use of uninitialized value at /var/www/htdocs/helix/cgi-bin/sah18/biares3.cgi line 25.") I'm not clear oh what this is referring to. If anyone else has any code snippets that do something similar, that could serve as an example for me, I would greatly appreciate any suggestions you might have. Thank you again, Sheree
