There is a CGI debugger that someone else can probably tell you the name
of (Scott?). Alternately, so that you can see what's printed to STDERR
and your warnings you might want to use CGI::Carp. This is really easy:
use CGI::Carp qw/fatalsToBrowser/;
you can learn more about CGI::Carp by reading:
I believe it is also well covered in the Camel book but I don't have one
here to give you page numbers.
All the best and welcome to Perl Mongers Melbourne!
