Newbie Formhandler - PERL Miscellaneous

Hi, I'm looking for a form handler script that will take what ever is entered in textbox 1 (there will be multiple textboxes) and use it for a txt filename. I would also need spaces in the name converted to underscores and if a file already exists with the same filename is it possible to either see if the contents are the same or give the new file a 1 or something like that in front of the filename?. I'm not worried about E-mail, just the txt file and a thank you page. Has anyone see this? -- Greg...

    Hi,

    I'm looking for a form handler script that will take what ever is entered in
    textbox 1 (there will be multiple textboxes) and use it for a txt filename.
    I would also need spaces in the name converted to underscores and if a file
    already exists with the same filename is it possible to either see if the
    contents are the same or give the new file a 1 or something like that in
    front of the filename?. I'm not worried about E-mail, just the txt file and
    a thank you page.
    Has anyone see this?

    Whilst I would in general agree with the 'help yourself' approach to this
    question, I think it would be best to point out that the majority of the
    examples that this search brings up are utterly appalling and as I would
    guess that the OP has no way of discerning the wheat from the chaff it might
    be worth suggesting that he first start by reading:

    [url]http://www.perl.com/pub/a/2002/01/23/cgi.html[/url]

    and then suggesting reading the doentation for the CGI module at:
