I'm *copying an example* perl cgi script from "FreeBSD Unleashed" pp.
I have 2 issues.

1. The redirect on the last line isn't working.  It opens a blank page
and prints the text "Location: http://howse.no-ip.org/thanks.shtml";.
That's not what I want.  I want to open the page thanks.shtml.

2. I can't see the text in the book clear enough to know whether the
characters I've marked with ^ should be dashes or tildies.

I've Googled for the redirect, and tried a few examples, no joy.
Would someone be kind enough to help?


read(STDIN, $buffer, $ENV{'CONTENT_LENGTH'});
@pairs = split(/&/, $buffer);
foreach $pair (@pairs)
    ($name, $value) = split(/=/, $pair);
    $value =~ tr/+/ /;
    $value =~ s/%([a-fA-F0-9][a-fA-F0-9])/pack("C", hex($1))/eg;
    $value =~ s/~!/ ~!/g;
            ^   ^   ^ 
    $FORM{$name} = $value;

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";

open (MAIL,"| /usr/sbin/sendmail -oi -t");
print MAIL "From: $FORM{'name'} <$FORM{'email'}>\n";
print MAIL "To: charles\n";
print MAIL "Subject: Contact form output\n\n";
print MAIL "$FORM{'name'}, from $ENV{'REMOTE_HOST'}
($ENV{'REMOTE_ADDR'}), has sent you the following comment:\n\n";
print MAIL "$FORM{'comment'}\n";
close (MAIL);

print "Location: http://howse.no-ip.org/thanks.shtml\n\n";;
