How do I create a 'File Upload' Dialog box GUI in perl? It should be like the one we see in Yahoo.

Vincent Milette, Prabhu T,


By adding the following HTML code, you specify to the browser that you want to allow 
upload.
<input type="File" name="file1">
This is in your html file seen by the visitor
You must add the following part to the form tag:
enctype="multipart/form-data"
So it looks like this:
<form name="NAME" method="POST" action="/cgi-bin/your.cgi" enctype="multipart/
form-data">
That's it!
NB: The form will give you the path and filename to upload...you must do the 
subroutines and everything else related by yourself. i.e. file type restriction, file size 
limit and so on
HTH
