User input does not appear on my CGI program's response page
Posted on 1998-08-21
I have a form to email program. Everything works except I can't seem to make the user's name (which is input through the form) appear on the CGI program's acknowledgement page to the user. The variable I used is called username. I thought I could get the value of this by simply typing $username:
#within a sub-program
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
<BODY>Thank you, $username!</BODY>
The response page that results is:
Thank you, !
Can someone help?
