Problem getting perl cgi-script to output info to a file...

Problem getting perl cgi-script to output info to a file...


I have a news applet that runs on cleartext, so I wanted to write a quick script that would allow us to post news over the web.  I'm new to perl - that's probably why this isn't working.  I open an input file, and basically put its contents into a big text box in a html form.. then when the person hits submit, it's suppossed to re-write the changes to the file.  I think my ISP uses IIS/Win NT.. the script runs on their server without errors - just doesn't write to the file.  Now, when I run it on a local unix box, it works fine.  Any ideas?  Here's the text version of the script...


Thanks. Please reply by email if possible.
