Saying "its not working" is like calling your automobile mechanic on the phone and telling him "My car is not working, whats wrong with it?". He will tell you to bring your car into the shop.

Let us know what you have tried so far. Post your code so that someone may analyze it and let you know what is wrong.

I do not know what you mean by "how to read it". I appreciate this might all be very new to you, and maybe English is not your first language, but I assume you are smart enough to know that nobody can help you unless you provide more information. Your code and any error messsages it produces when you run it would be a good starting point (bring your car into the shop).

After looking over some of your past posting history, I decided I no longer want to help you. You ask questions and other people take the time to respond and you never reply back. I prefer to not help people that do that. That is my own policy and not the policy of this website.

Best regards,

hey guys.
what i ment by read the .gci file, is simply open it as you open a word document (double click on the document's icon). that is what i want. i don't know the basic rules of perl , i don't know anything about it. that is why i came here i just wanted to know if i can read it as i read a word document. because there is a router which i have executes a cgi file to complete a certain function. i wanted to know what is that cgi is doing. what i know that is for sure that cgi uses a post command to send the data to the router i just wanted to know what does that command includes.
thanks

When you access the address, your router is running the code and giving you the results. From the browser-side, this is the only access you will usually have. You need to find some way of pulling files off of the router, such as FTP or TFTP, in order to view them in their unprocessed state.

This is an unusual way of using the router, and it may not be possible to do it. The specific way of getting the raw files depends on the specific type of router you are trying to use. You could possibly find more information or specific help on router "hacking" messageboards or groups.

If you can see the file, then why not just open it up with your favorite text editor (vim on Unix or Wordpad on Window$)?
