Matt's WebShop part 3

Last Modified: 2012-05-04
I'm working with Matt's WebShop.cgi from the Perl Cookbook. I have four issues that I need to address. Each issue is posted as a separate question. The script is to long to post here. Working examples of what I have and the issues can be found at http://www.fishhead.com/webshop.html. There is also a link to the scripts at this page. Even though the script is long it is well commented as to each section.

I don't like the fact that the script displays the Unix path to each file and directory in the browser. You can see this when you enter the WebShop example I have up. This seems to be a security problem to me. I would like to avoid giving that information to the browser if possible. I've seen scripts that only display the name of the script with each function.
