moving around the directory tree Can't Post

I'm using the module and want to attach a file to it that is located in a different directory than the script.
the script is in the cgi-bin and if I put the file there it works, but ./online_order/
does now work.
The files are located in the folder online_order, which is in the same directory as the folder cgi-bin.
Unfortunately I alway get an error message in my error log, saying file:"./online_order/file.txt" not found at (location of the nodule line 145.
Please help!

I would try something like this:

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial,Helvetica,sans serif">code:</font><HR>

$top = build MIME::Entity (From => '',
To => '',
Subject => "Photo of the Family",
Path => glob (./online_order/file.txt));


Frown Had to fix code section. Nothing lined up.

In all the examples I have seen, it looks as
though the writers knew this would be used from a cgi-bin and based the path off the web root and not virtual with respect to where they are currently in the directory structure.

This is just a guess. If anyone has a more
definitive answer, I would like to hear it for my benefit as well.
