You just need to save the value and restore it to your input fields someway.

Where you're actually keeping the data (server-side data against a session, posted form paramters etc... ) would determine the method. Here's a simple example with posted data. Firstname is sticky after the form is submitted, surname isn't.

#!/usr/bin/perl use CGI; use CGI::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser); use warnings; use strict; my $q = new CGI; my $firstname = $q->param('firstname'); print qq|content-type: text/html\n\n|; print qq|<form action="$ENV{SCRIPT_NAME}" method="post" name=f>\n|; print qq|<input name="firstname" type="text" value="$firstname"/><hr/> +|; print qq|<input name="surname" type="text"/><hr/>|; print qq|<input type="submit" name="form_submit" value="go">|;
my name's not Keith, and I'm not reasonable.

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
