Re: Perl error: offline mode: enter name=value pairs on standard input

Date: Mon Sep 08 2003 - 21:35:09 GMT
Hi Bill,

The answer to my own problem...
The (offline mode: enter name=value pairs on standard input) 'error' mislead me to believe that the problem was due to the old perl version installed in one of our servers. In the other hand my browser was showing me the "Software Error and Please check error log" message (from the swish.cgi script).

For some reason the Perl configuration in this machine did not obey
To the
use lib qw( modules);
and was searching for the perl modules in /perl/lib/
Once I copied the archives to this location the form appeared in my browser.

Now I'm getting the following message: "Service currently unavailable" and I have the feeling that this problem has to do with the old perl version (which I can't get reed of :(

Thanks for your help.

Considering Perl is 5.8 now, upgrading perl would be a good idea.  But
you can also just upgrade, although I'm not sure if a newer would require upgrading perl.  I doubt it -- I'm running this
2.74 on a machine with perl 5.00503
