I am a bit of a novice with CGI scripting, and you seem like a helpful bunch...hopefully you can help me with this issue I am having with an upload form.
I wanted to add a form to a website so visitors can upload audio files; I'm pretty certain the HTML is good, and the server settings appear to be fine as well (as do the paths for the .cgi file, and the upload folder), but I keep getting various errors whenever I try to test the form. The last error I got was:
Global symbol "$email" requires explicit package name at upload.cgi line 45.
I don't see "$email" anywhere in the vicinity of line 45, which is where the "thank you" message HTML starts. Further down, "$email" is in the HTML (where it references the visitor's email for the "thank you" message), but even if I add "my" in front of it, I still get the same error. What might I be doing wrong to cause this error?
Many thanks in advance...
