in reply to Need help with CGI::Upload

I think your problem is that you're using a do-it-yourself form processer rather than to get your form parameters, then you're calling as well. CGI handles all form processing for you. If you want a hash of your form parameters you can do this:

my %parse = $cgi->Vars();

Or you can do named parameters:

my $directory = $cgi->param('directory');

Using the two could be the reason you're getting the 'Malformed multipart POST' ... though I can't be sure. At any rate you should still use just

Next you're uuencoding your file as it comes in. I don't think you want to do that if you're going to show the file again in anything else. I don't believe that image programs or browsers are going to be expecting it to be encoded that way.

I don't know if my suggestions will solve your problem but I certainly hope it helps :)
