A dispatch table is often used for this. It helps separate your input data from your code and helps trap invalid data. It works under strict and warnings and is prettier than a string of if/elses. :-)
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; my %dispatch = ( table1 => \&_upload_table1, table2 => \&_upload_table1, ); my $tablename = cgi->param('tablename'); die qq{bad param\n} unless exists $dispatch{$tablename}; $dispatch{$tablename}->(); sub _upload_table1 { } sub _upload_table2 { }
update: <cough> added the call to the sub :-)

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
