HTML form plus Perl script

HTML form plus Perl script

HTML form plus Perl script

Where can an absolute perl-illiterate go for a customizable perl form-to-email script with its accompanying html form?
I've checked out the main Perl portals and the form I found and "installed" gives me an error to the tune of "...this kind of POST is not allowed". Thanks to all you Perl geniuses out there.

RE: HTML form plus Perl script

Do you want to learn Perl or do you just need to send an email?

If you just want to send an email, you might just use......

<a href="mailto:someone@somewhere.com?subject=some subject">shoot an email</a>

This is not universally supported in all browsers, but most of the major ones do it.

If you want to use a little Perl, try checking out the FAQ about using sendmail.  See the tab at the top of the front page of this forum.

RE: HTML form plus Perl script

You could also try cgi-resources.com, they have hundreds of form-2-mail scripts.

This may sound a stupid question, but you definately have Perl access, and are putting the script in your cgi-bin and checking it has the right permissions?
