About a week and a half ago I asked you all how to upload files to the web.
I studied recommended URLs and tried the advice. Although I never found
anything that worked, I have made progress.

The following is a bare bones program that works in the laptop with a
personal server. It doesn't work when placed at the host. It can find the
source file, but can't seem to send it.

Any help appreciated.

BTW: The laptop has Windoz-95.

#!/perl/bin/perl -w
#!/usr/local/bin/perl -w

use CGI qw/:standard/; 
use CGI::Carp qw/fatalsToBrowser/;$| = 1;
$co = new CGI;
print $co->header();
print $co->start_html(-title=>'UPLOAD PAGE!');

print $co->filefield('uploaded_file','starting value',50,100); 
print $co->submit(-name=>'button_name', -value=>'Do it!'); 
print $co->endform;
$filename = $co->param('uploaded_file');
print "--$filename--<br><br>";
binmode INFILE;

if(-e "dummy.fil")                              #if on personal server...
else                                            #if on internet...
binmode OUTFILE;
while (read(INFILE,$buffer,1024)){print OUTFILE $buffer}
close (OUTFILE); 
close (INFILE); 

print "<img src='../../../photos/yy.jpg'>"; 
print "</html>";
#end of program===================================
