I'm trying to run the following test form and corresponding perl script. Everything shows but the variable "name". Can anyone see why this is?

Kevin Riggs
<TITLE>Test form</TITLE>
<FORM METHOD="post" ACTION="cgi-bin/">
Name:<INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="name">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="click here">
and the perl script:

use CGI;
my $handler;
$handler = CGI::new();
print $handler->header();
print $handler->start_html(
  -title=>"form results\n",
print "Name: $name";
print $handler->end_html();
