Using Perl to add hyperlink to html files

Hi ,

I have written a csh script which will output file named " myoutput.html " displayed below. I am tried to ftp this html file into a local web server so that it can be displayed to public sharing this server and i would want to add a hyperlink to " XX " , " YY " , " ZZ ". Can this be done using perl ? Can anybody show me an example of the code to perform this ?

XX 20 $50
YY 30 $60
ZZ 40 $70

It doesn't look like HTML to me.

I thought you would want to generate

Code:
<html>
    <head>
          <title>My webpage</title>
    <head>
    <body>
        <a href="some-url">XX</a> 20 $50<br>
        <a href="some-url">YY</a> 30 $60<br>
        <a href="some-url">ZZ</a> 40 $70<br> 
    </body>
</html>

Hi Porter,

Can i use perl to create your HTML code before i ftp ?
I would want to perform everything in my Solaris OS that is

1) generate the .html extension file using csh
2) create hyperlink in the html file ( using perl maybe or html ? )
3) ftp to the server

Hi Porter,

How about the ftp part ? How can i ftp this whole portion over?
I tried to copy everything into a file named webfile by using print "<html>\r\n"; > webfile but it's showing syntax error.
