Here is an example from

see http://blogs.sitepoint.com/uploading-files-cgi-perl/

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en"> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" /> <title>File Upload</title> </head> <body> <form action="/cgi-bin/upload.cgi" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data"> <p>Photo to Upload: <input type="file" name="photo" /></p> <p>Your Email Address: <input type="text" name="email_address" /></p> <p><input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit Form" /></p> </form> </body> </html>

with this perl file

#!/usr/bin/perl -wT use strict; use CGI; use CGI::Carp qw ( fatalsToBrowser ); use File::Basename; $CGI::POST_MAX = 1024 * 5000; my $safe_filename_characters = "a-zA-Z0-9_.-"; my $upload_dir = "/home/mywebsite/htdocs/upload"; my $query = new CGI; my $filename = $query->param("photo"); my $email_address = $query->param("email_address"); if ( !$filename ) { print $query->header ( ); print "There was a problem uploading your photo (try a smaller file)."; exit; } my ( $name, $path, $extension ) = fileparse ( $filename, '\..*' ); $filename = $name . $extension; $filename =~ tr/ /_/; $filename =~ s/[^$safe_filename_characters]//g; if ( $filename =~ /^([$safe_filename_characters]+)$/ ) { $filename = $1; } else { die "Filename contains invalid characters"; } my $upload_filehandle = $query->upload("photo"); open ( UPLOADFILE, ">$upload_dir/$filename" ) or die "$!"; binmode UPLOADFILE; while ( <$upload_filehandle> ) { print UPLOADFILE; } close UPLOADFILE; print $query->header ( ); print <<END_HTML; <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en"> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" /> <title>Thanks!</title> <style type="text/css"> img {border: none;} </style> </head> <body> <p>Thanks for uploading your photo!</p> <p>Your email address: $email_address</p> <p>Your photo:</p> <p><img src="/upload/$filename" alt="Photo" /></p> </body> </html> END_HTML
