Getting form FIELDS picked up for e-mailing with Net::SMTP

TiradientesTiradientes Posts: 1Member
When I SUBMIT a POST form from HTML, all I get in the e-mail that is sent to me are the names of the fields, but the field data is not copied. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

First, the simple HTML code:

Personal name:
Family name:

Next, the corresponding CGI:
#!/usr/bin/perl - -
use Net::SMTP;
$smtp = Net::SMTP->new('', Timeout => 60);
$smtp->mail('[email protected]');
$smtp->recipient('[email protected]');
$firstname = ('firstname');
$familyname = ('familyname');
$smtp->datasend("From: [email protected]
$smtp->datasend("To: [email protected]
$smtp->datasend("Subject: Special-order book

$smtp->datasend("$firstname familyname") ;
") ;
print "Content-type:text/html

print "done.
