What is the problem with the following perl code?
# Author name:
# Creation date:
# Description:
require "cgi-lib.pl";


open(DAT,">>$site_data") || die("Cannot open file");
$first_name = $input{'first'};
$last_name = $input{'last'};
$email = $input{'email'};
$homepage_url = $input{'url'};
$comment = $input{'comment'};

print DAT "$first_name $last_name $email $homepage_url $commment \n";

I keep getting the following error:
Status: 302 Found Location: /bin/error?error=Your%20script%20produced%20this%


URI: /bin/error?error=Your%20script%20produced%20this%20error%3A%20%3Cbr%3Ecgi-

lib.pl%3A%20Unknown%20Content-type%3A%20 Content-type: text/html 

Here is the HTMl form:
<!-- \/ starthtml -->
<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" text="#000000" link="#0000EE" vlink="#551A8B">

<form method="post" action="/cgi-bin/script.cgi">
<input type="text" name="first">
<input type="text" name="last">
<input type="text" name="email">
<input type="text" name="url">
<textarea name="comment"></textarea>
<input type="submit">

<!-- /\ end html  -->
