I have a form which passes a string to a CGI program written in Perl. How do I convert this string to lower case - as it is transferred as a mixture of upper and lower case characters.

Use tr.  For example:

$form_data = "HeRe Is A MixED CaSE StrInG...\n";
$form_data =~ tr/A-Z/a-z/;
print $form_data

generates:
here is a mixed case string...
