the following is a perl file, but why I click the submit button, the registration.cgi file can not invoked?

#!/bnr/projects/pegasus/perl5

require "cgi-lib.pl";


#&handle_cmd_line;
print STDOUT "Content-type: text/html\n\n";



&ReadParse(*values);

print"<html>

<head>
<title> regitstatin</title>
</head>

<body bgcolor=\"#FFFFFF\">
<form METHOD=\"POST\" action=\"/cgi-bin/process/hctu/she/registration.cgi\">




<input name='name1' value=$values{'name'}>
<input  name='employee1' value=$values{'employee'}>
<input  name='location1' value=$values{'location'}>
<input  name='job_title1' value=$values{'job_title'}>
<input  name='lob1' value=$values{'lob'}>
<input  name='dept_loc1' value=$values{'dept_loc'}>
<input  name='project_num1' value=$values{'project_num'}>
<input  name='E_mail1' value=$values{'E_mail'}>

Instead of using the BUTTON input type field, use the SUBMIT input type at the bottom of the form:

<input TYPE=\"submit\" VALUE=\"Submit Application\">

A BUTTON only does something useful if you have JavaScript code attached to it.
