Parse HTML tags (need help)

Parse HTML tags (need help)

Parse HTML tags (need help)

Iwrite CGI for my images portfolio. This is my first "serious" script, and I need anyone, who can help me.:-)
I modified parse_template subroutine(by Matt Wright, CGI/Perl coocbook) for returning parsed txt file in program, and using it as easy customizable page
parts. Code for call this subroutine is:
$file = "$txt_files/file.txt";
if (!&parse_file($file)) {
$read_file = "Can not read file.txt";
# set 'SUBHEADER' for send page to browser:
$VAR{'SUBHEADER'} = "$read_file";

This work wonderful, if file.txt is only text file, but do'nt work, if file.txt include HTML tags (a.s. code for HTML form).:-(
I seems, returned $read_file = "", place on HTML page, where must be located parse results is empty.
Please, help me. That I do wrong? The full code you can see only clicking on link. http://greeting-card.virtualave.net/test.html
