body onUnload with perl script

I have a shoping cart page wth a registration form.

The submit button takes them to GoogleCheckout.

I want to call my formmail.cgi with the <body unload=...> tag.

However, I get 2 error messages ater I click Submit

1) cgi is undefined
2) browser prompt me to open or save cgi file

Code is:
<body onUnload="cgi-bin/bformmail.cgi">

The perl script works if i call it with the action method in the form tag.

I could call it within a js function, then call that function with the action method before calling the GoogleCheckout code but...

I've searched for hours and cannot figure out how to do it.

(Do I have to tell the browser it's perl script and if so how?)

Any code snippets will be greatly appreciated!

If you have a form, then the correct place to put it is in the form tag as you mentioned. The form is what would be processed, not the HTML body. When the submit button is clicked, then the form will kick off that script and submit its values to it.

Also, you have to make sure that CGI is enabled in the web server on the machine the script resides on, otherwise the script will be printed to the screen, most likely.

Regards,
