Hi John! Glad to see you're using your new Perl skills, and getting help
from the mailing list.
A Perl program running in CGI mode will typically use the "nobody" UID,
which means it will have to operate with more restricted permissions than
it does when you run it as "john" from the command line (this is determined
by the server's configuration details).
Once you have tested your program and in so doing created that file
with "john" ownership, the "nobody" account won't be able to write to
it, assuming a normal umask setting of 022. chmod o+w on the file
will fix that.
