Subject Re: doesn't work propertly with $Request->Form object
Date Fri, 09 Jul 2004 17:53:01 GMT
Others have reported problems using Apache2 and CGI.  I might try downgrading
CGI and see if that helps.  CGI 2.78 or some such is one I have success with
generally, but I am not big on always upgrading to the latest if what I have
worked.  You can find older modules at:

If nothing helps, say so.  Please say what CGI version you are working with and
what mod_perl version exactly.
