Removing an item Can't Post

Can anyone see if there are somthing wrong with the script beneth?

It removes an item using cookies and stuff
When you click a link it uses this action
My problem is if I have stored 3 items and delete 1 of them:
I get one of the two with an URL looking like this:

You see no number

here are the subroutine in the script that do the removing:

sub RemoveItem {

if (&GetCookies('cart')) {
(@ToBeModified) = split(/\|/, $Cookies{'cart'});
$KillNumber = $contents{'number'};


print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
print "<html><head><title>Slettet</title></head><body bgcolor=white>Artikkelen er tatt bort<p>\n";
print "Handlekurven din inneholder:\n";
print "<table border=1><tr><td>Ant.</td><td>Artikkel</td><td>Farge</td><td>Str</td><td>Pris</td><td> </td></tr>\n";

foreach $ToBeModified (@ToBeModified) {

($quantity, $price, $item, $farge, $str) = split(/:/ , $ToBeModified);

print "<tr><td>$quantity</td><td>$item</td><td>$farge</td><td>$str</td><Td>\Kr.$price stk.</td><td><a href=$newform?action=RemoveItem\&number=$RemoveNumber>Ta bort</a></td></tr>\n";
$tobeadded = $ToBeModified;
} #end foreach

print "<tr><td colspan=3 align=right>Total:</td><td><b>\ Kr.";
printf("%.2f", $TheTotal);
print "</b></td></tr>\n";
print "</table>\n";
print "<a href=$referer>Fortsett handle</a>\n";
print "</body></html>";
} #end if
else {
print "Du m ha Artikkler i handlekurven for ta bort.\n";
print "<a href=$referer>Fortsett handle</a>\n";
} #end else
} #end sub

In this line:

a href=$newform?action=RemoveItem\&number=$RemoveNumber>Ta bort

RemoveItem should be $RemoveItem

I don't see where your initalizing $RemoveNumber at all. If the first time you use it is in this line, then it will be empty.

>> If you can't control it, improve it, correlate it or disseminate it with PERL, it doesn't exist!

no I dont think he wants it to be $RemoveItem, he is telling the script where he wants to go:

if ($action eq 'RemoveItem') {
... whatever ...

like that

Thanks folx for helping me to solve this

I have an litle demo where you can see it action and see the problem.

If you go to this URL:

Try adding 3-4 times and then click the 'ta bort' (norwegian for delete' and then check the URL for the first item it displays no number.
