Hello, list, I've occasionally had a mysterious problem with CGI Perl scripting wherein I call my script, and instead of the page output I expect, my browser (IE 6, my company's standard) brings up a file download box with the name of the Perl script in it, asking me if I'd like to open or save it. It was happening today, and I think I've finally narrowed it down. I get this when I attempt to output with "Content-Type: text/plain", instead of "text/html". It's very consistent, and happens with both the CGI::header function or if I just print the content-type line myself. "text/html" works fine; In either case, I change the "html" to "plain", and I get the dialog box. Could this be a security setting in IE? Or maybe a security setting somewhere else in our system (such as a proxy)? I can't try it in other browsers right now because I'm sending this from work... Obviously I can get around it by writing text/html, but I'm curious. If I knew more about it, I'd submit a tip for it! - John ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Company Disclaimer Automatically Appended: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This message may contain information which is private, privileged or confidential and is intended solely for the use of the individual or entity named in the message.
