Thanks to all for the help.

Looking at documentation, i found the -nosticky pragma, and tried that, but it didn't solve the problem. oddly enough, in the actual loops of the script, $action gets defined as 'logout' before it ever sees $action='login', but, of course, in order to be logged in, you have to have set that action in a previous call to the script. Unfortunately, just adding the -nosticky pragma didn't solve the problem.

adding the -override element to the hidden field worked great!!

so, i'm still perplexed as to the behaviour, since i've used loops like this in the past with no problems, but since it's working at the moment, i won't complain!!

again, thanks for leading me out of the woods. jck

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.
