Simple Perl/AJAX Form

Last Modified: 2014-05-18
I'm after the barebones to pass a single value to a Perl CGI via query and output the result.

The HTML I need to modify is:

<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery-1.10.2.min.js"></script>

<div class="input-form">
     <input type="text" name="field1" class="form-control" placeholder="Enter to search...">
                    <span class="input-btn">
                        <button class="btn" id="check" type="button"><i class="b-search"></i></button>

<div class="result">
The output of the Perl CGI Script

What HTML/JS modifications do I need to make to invoke my Perl CGI script?
