strange behavior when using 'read'

Hi, I have a web/cgi script that allows users to upload a file to the
web server. I want to only allow files up to a certain size, which is
stored in $imageFileMaxSi ze (typically 75K). That part works correctly,
i.e. the script does not allow uploads larger than $imageFileMaxSi ze.

The problem is, when a user attempts to upload a file larger than
$imageFileMaxSi ze, the on_error routine is not called; instead the
script reloads from its starting point, with no message. My users find
this confusing, sometimes thinking the file has been uploaded,
sometimes getting frustrated and trying again.

How can I get on_error to display the proper message? Here's my code:

$imageFileMaxSi ze = 75000;
$CGI::POST_MAX = $imageFileMaxSi ze;

sub create_new_imag e_file {
my $newImageFile = @_;

$file = param('imagefil e');

open (SAVE, ">$newImageFile namePath")");
while (read($file,$da ta,1024)) {
print SAVE $data;
$imageFileLengt h += length($data);
on_error("Image file is too large; maximum size allowed is
$imageFileMaxSi ze") if($imageFileLe ngth > $imageFileMaxSi ze);
}
close(SAVE);
on_error("File was not received; check filename.") if($imageFileLe ngth
< 1);

}

thanks!
Scott

hi, I found an interesting thing in operator behaviour in C++ : int i=1; printf("%d",i++ + i++); I think the value of the expression "i++ + i++" _must_ be 3, but all the compilers I tested print 2.

The larger, original...
