Broswer checking PHP, Perl

Is there some site like the HTML and CSS validators that checks for PHP or Perl code that will not work in certain browsers?

I have a Perl-based upload site that works for some of my students but not for others. -- David

Hi David,

You can use the following Perl Validator to check on syntax:
ult-tex.net/tools/ultra/line_count.pl

However, if the issue is occurring in one browser, but no another, it's more likely to be due to something else. Are you familiar with Firebug? If so, could you use it to check if there are any Javascript errors on the upload form?

Kind regards,
Nick

It's entirely Perl code. That .pl URL doesn't work -- for me in Firefox at least. Thanks. -- David

Hi David,

Could we get the URL to test?

Also, are you familiar with Firebug? If so, could you use it to check if there are any Javascript errors on the upload form? Even though it's generated using Perl on the server side, if it's a webpage then HMTL, CSS, and/or Javascript is likely outputted to the browser. There may be a conflict within the output.

Kind regards,
Nick
