Hi, I''m having trouble with this script file... it''s a mailing list generator. The log file says ''premature end of script headers'' I''ve checked everything as much as I know. The rights are as follows... everything 775 except the list text file (asnl.txt) that is 770 (to prevent public access) I''ve uploaded as Binary and ASCII. I''ve checked the print statements for incorrect content type... it doesn''t include any html print statements, so I don''t think it''s that! The script is here If anyone could fix it, I would be very grateful. Thanks, R

I had problems opening your ZIP file, but Premature end of headers usually means that you didn''t do your HTTP headers properly.

The basics are:

Content-type: text/html\n\n

Make sure there is nothing wrong before that header is done.

I think if you try to run CGI outside their permitted directories, you can also get that error. Make sure you''re running your CGI from your cgi-bin directory. What that is depends on your distribution and Apache install.

I don''t do a ton of CGI programming, so others might have better info.

I think I ought to mention... the script is an only slightly modified version of ''Subscribe'' from ''PerlfectSolutions''
