View a log file at 50 lines at a time.

I know this is almost the same as the question about 700 lines, but I would like someone to help me have it do more. How do I have it load 50 lines of a document, have it create a button (submit) that I could click on then it load the next 50, and so on and so on.

thanks

same thing (almost):

while( <FILE> ){
   push @a,$_;
   next if @a < 50;
#process your 50 lines here

   print <TT;
     <form method="POST">
     <input type="submit" value="Next 50 lines"
     </form>
TT

   @a = ();
  }
  do the rest here

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

this is what I have on my site and it gives me an 500 Internal Server Error message (from my browser....

if ($command eq 'ViewFullLog') {
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
print "<html>\n";
print "<head><title>View the log</title></head>\n";
print "$body\n";

open (FILE, "/cgi-bin/FullLog.txt") || die "Cannot open $!";
while( <FILE> ){
      push @a,$_;
        next if @a < 50;
        #process your 50 lines here
        print <TT;
              <form method="POST">
              <input type="submit" value="Next 50 lines"
              </form>
        TT
      print "</body></html>\n";
        @a = ();

exit;
}

print <TT;
should be
 print <<TT;
and the coreesponding TT at the end should be the onle thing on the line
with no blank spaces before or after it.

Does it get the same error when $command ne 'ViewFullLog'?
Do you have a close } on your if?
What's in $body?
What if you change
  die "Cannot open $!"
to
  print "Content-type text/plain\n\nCannot open $!\n</body></html>\n"

and
 <input type="submit" value="Next 50 lines"
should probably be
 <input type="submit" value="Next 50 lines">

Ok $body holds the <body bg=.... text=.... etc.> i know that is  not the problem since it works fine in all of my other scripts and it worked fine before I added this code.  Also I tried change eq, still made no difference (so I changed it back).  I fixed the form error (missing the >). Still no difference.  Also changed the content-type command.  Still no change, still gettign the Internal Server Error..

Are there any print statements before that code fragment? If there are they should be preceded by print "Content-type: text/html\n\n", which should be your first print.
