It could be there is a problem in the script before that section of your code. Add this to your program:

use CGI::Carp qw/fatalsToBrowser warningsToBrowser/;

see the CGI::Carp modules documentation for more details.

Thanks for quick reply,

One thing I forgot to tell was that sometimes every thing runs fine and sometimes I get an error:--

malformed header from script. Bad header=<file><record><Item name=" c:/program files/apache group/apache/cgi-bin/folderbased.cgi

also using cgi::carp does not show some extra errors the errors are same.
