I have decided to try perl. And my first thing I'm trying is part of a mailing list. I'm trying to make a simple webpage that asks for your email address and them takes you to a page that says "You have subscribed to Neandrake's mailing list using the email address $subscribedemail". This isn't working. In my perl program(mailinglist.cgi) it goes like this:
an instance of the CGI object
$cgiobject = new CGI;#grab
the values submitted by the user
HTML header to web browser
data, output appropriate message
print "You have just subscribed to Neandrake's mailing list as $subscribe";
I'm pretty sure the settings are correct(running windows 98, using drive f and all dirs are correct), but when I use the page:
It just displays the contents of the perl script(mailinglist.cgi).
What am I doing wrong?
