( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Can anyone suggest why the following runs at the command line but dies on $ftp->ls when run from the web browser? I'm completely baffled. But this really is what's happening - exact same file, does what it says on the can when run from the command line, dies in the browser. Did I mention I was baffled?
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use lib '/home/httpd/lib'; use CGI qw/:standard :cgi-lib/; print header; use jbr::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser warningsToBrowser); warningsToBrowser(1); use Net::FTP; $| = 1; my $ftp = Net::FTP->new("", Debug => 0); $ftp->login('xxxxxxx','xxxxxx'); $ftp->cwd('/tst') or die; my @files = $ftp->ls or die; print h2 "deleting old pages..."; for (@files) { print p $_; $ftp->delete($_); }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
