( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I got this from earlier post and it works great running in NT DOS where it opens up my Outlook mail with NO problems:
my $outlookmail = "c:/Program Files/Microsoft Office/Office/Outlook.ex +e"; open (CMDLOG,"| $outlookmail") || die "$!"; close CMDLOG || die "$!";
But when I try and put it in a web page it does not work.
Here is Perl/CGI part called "outl.cgi":
#!/usr/local/bin/perl use CGI qw(:standard); #Perl web CGI module use CGI::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser); my $outlookmail = "c:/Program Files/Microsoft Office/Office/Outlook.ex +e"; open (CMDLOG,"| $outlookmail") || die "$!"; close CMDLOG || die "$!";
Web part:
<html> <head> <title>Untitled</title> </head> <BODY> <FORM ACTION="outl.cgi" METHOD="POST"> <TABLE width="60%"> <table><TR> <TR><TD COLSPAN=2> </TD></TR> <TR> <TD> </TD> <TD align="left"><input type="submit" value="Submit"> </TD> </TR> </TABLE> </FORM> </BODY> </HTML>
Any suggestions????

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.
