Here is my script so far:

#!/usr/bin/perl
use CGI;

$query= CGI->new();
$email = $query->param('email');
$passwd = $query->param('password');

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";


as you see, im taking an email and a password from a form submitted by the user. How do I make $email and $passwd lower case as a standard?

#try using the lc (lowercase) function:
$email = lc($email);
$passwd = lc($passwd);

#or simply
$email = lc($query->param('email'));
$passwd = lc($query->param('password'));

if that is what you mean. Unless you mean something else with "standard"?

Greetz,
Abel

Aren't choices wonderful!
