Hey Bear or anyone else,
The application I have is written in Perl and is a cgi application. Can I still accomplish this task even though I'm not using the same procedures (i.e. server setup) as I would when developing JSPs? Before checking out the JSP site I'd like to know if I still can or not. Right now HTML and Javascript are the closest things I'm using since there is no forum for Perl. Thanks for the response(s) by the way.
Rob

I am not sure what you are asking exactly.......
I have coded some perl in the past so I know a little bit about it.

Which task are you asking about?
And like Eric, it's been years since I've done any CGI coding. Ahhhh... not-so-fond memories of Perl: The Write-Only Language.

Bear and Eric,
Sorry about that. This is a continuation of the "How can you..." posting. In haste, I guess I clicked the "Post New Topic" instead of Reply. Basically, what I'm asking is in reference to uploading files to a site from the client machine. The application I'm running is written in Perl and not JSP so hence the reasoning why I posted here because it was the closest forum that seemed to fit. The overall task I'm trying to accomplish is to have a Customer Service page whereby a customer can ask questions or add comments regarding our products and allow them to upload screen shots, extract files created from our existing software, etc.., and that file(s) could then be later downloaded by other interested customers (if we desire to do it that way) or by the same customer. If you could give me any response that could help in accomplishing this it would be much appreciated. Thanks again.
Rob

Okay, I am still lost basically are you asking this?
Can you upload files with Perl? Yes
How do I do it?
This page has scripts here to do it: http://cgi.resourceindex.com/Programs_and_Scripts/Perl/File_Management/File_Uploading/ and you have to make sure that the folder has the write permissions set on the server.
Can the files be downloaded?
Yes they can, but you need to figure out a way to keep track on the file and the person that uploaded it so you can have a connection between the 2.
Did I answer what you wanted to know???
Eric
