Subject: trouble uploading files with mozilla

I'm trying to make a simple file uploader using's $query->upload. All the code I've tried results in "Use of uninitialized value in <HANDLE>" when it tries to read the uploaded file. The code I have now, which is pretty close to the example code I can find is: my $filename = $q->param("filename"); $filename =~ s/.*[\/\\](.*)/$1/; my $upload_filehandle = $q->upload("filename"); while ( <$upload_filehandle> ) { print STDERR; } looking at a Dumper of $q, I don't see any .tmpfiles. googling, finds this thread: which seems to be the same problem I'm looking at.

Ah. It appears better now that I'm using start_multipart_form, and not start_form. I think I blame the docs. Anyhow, you may as well close this, this, or call it a doc bug.
