in thread Unwanted CGI "Submit" Parameter

Hmmm... that's not entirely true. There's a big difference in these two submit buttons:
<input type=Submit value="This doesn't have a value"> <input type=Submit name=Submit value="This one has a value">
In other words, if you don't provide a name, there is nothing to associate the value to. Am I missing out on something important or has everyone gone gaga? :) Also, on a side note, I'd drop cgi-lib.pl and start using CGI.pm with the compatibility mode. Ie:
use CGI; CGI::ReadParse(*in);
My R$0.02 (its less than two cents when you convert it to US$)

    You are totally correct.. In my experience I generally don't see a submit input item with a name attribute unless the coder is interested in the value of the submit button..
    <input type='submit' name='submit' value='Next'> <input type='submit' name='submit' value='Previous'>
    Of course you can make it whatever name you want, but if you don't particularly care what submit button they hit, just don't provide a name attribute:
    <input type='submit' value='Save'>
