How do I save form data from a textarea form element to a text (.txt) file? (flat file)

Nat Tuck, marcy rye,


Does anyone ever read the docs before asking a question?
#!/usr/bin/perl
use warnings FATAL => 'all';
use strict;
use CGI qw(param);
open F, ">file.txt";
print F param('textarea-name');
close F;
print "Content-type: text/plain\r\n\r\n";
print "You win a text file";
