How to pass filepath as a parameter to URL using perl (SOLVED Can't Post

Below query was solved at stackoverflow.

I am testing my perl code. I want to pass filepath as a paramter to the URL of the page.

The perl code is dependent on this filepath entirely.

When i set the filepath inside my perl code. (hard coded path), i am able to execute the perl code without any errors. Here is the variable

    my $filename="\\\\\\folder\\data.txt";

If i pass it via URL, it doesnt work as expected. Can anyone suggest how to pass filepath as a variable in the URL ?

Here is what all i tried to someohow transfer $filename from url to perl code.


The above data may seem confusing. But please only read values after ?ffilename. Can anyone pls suggest.

I also tried passing other normal paramters and it worked. for e.g.
$account=GEL; this works but only the filepath doesnt work.
