CGI::FormBuilder malformed header

hesco has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm using CGI::FormBuilder, my constructor includes header => 1, templates => '/path/to/template.html', and I'm getting this error:

malformed header from script. Bad header=<?xml version="1.0" encoding= +": volunteer.cgi
Doesn't this mean it is not getting the Content-Type? Shouldn't header being set to 1 generate such an animal? When I add a print $q->header(); to the mix, it resolves the issue. But I would have thought that setting header => 1, in the constructor would do the trick.

    I borrowed an example from the formbuilder website. They used header => 1 towards the end of the script. It works for me:
    #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use CGI::FormBuilder; my @fields = qw(name email password confirm_password zipcode); my $form = CGI::FormBuilder->new( method => 'post', fields => \@fields, validate => { email => 'EMAIL', phone => 'PHONE', }, required => 'ALL', ); if ( $form->submitted ) { my $fname = $form->field('first_name'); $fname = $form->field('last_name'); print $form->confirm( header => 1 ); } else { print $form->render( header => 1 ); }

    That is not code proof
