Re: [ros] Redirect URL as a variable

The script I am running is on a shared secure server of which unfortunately I do not have access to the logs (it's a suck it and see job)

It's a really bad idea to try and develop CGI programs when you can't see the error logs. I would consider that a basic requirement for a functional web server.

There are, however, ways around it. Try adding the code

use CGI::Carp 'fatalsToBrowser';

to you program. That will then write any fatal errors to the browser window.

Any good books you can suggest for a real simpleton?

The Perl community's recommendations for books are all listed in perldoc perlfaq2. For learning Perl it basically bols down to Learning Perl if you have previous programming experience or Elements of Programming with Perl if you haven't. I also like Perl for Web Site Management which is more of a learners book than the title implies.
