Hm. I'm not quite sure exactly what you are asking. Are you asking how to use a single script, that when invoked the first time displays the form, but on subsequent invocations adds the data from the previous submission to the current one? (whew!)

For example, consider a form with a single input box. When the user enters something and submits it, the form is returned with the data intact, allowing him to add another chunk of text to it? Something like this?

use strict; use CGI; my $cgi=new CGI; sub doform { my $text=$cgi->param("text"); print $cgi->header; print "<html><body>"; print "Accumilating data: $text<P>"; print "<form method=post>"; print "<input type=text name=newtext>"; print "<input type=hidden name=text value=\"\Q$text\E\""; print "</form>"; print "</body></html>\n"; } $cgi->param("text",$cgi->param("text").$cgi->param("newtext")) if defi +ned $cgi->param("newtext"); doform;

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.
