cgi-perl program not working right

by yktc - 12/17/12 2:24 PM

Hello and a Merry Christmas to you and yours.
I am Joe Stephens, of YKTC.US (YOUR KEY TO COLLECTIBLES)
I have an auction/classifieds web site,
http://www.yktc.us/cgi-bin/auction/auction.pl
that I obtained in 2005.
Written in cgi-perl, I write mostly in html, and had a guy doing some work for me this pass year. He is gone now, many reasons. But before he left he changed the online file code of the above, all the back up files - even the two original files stored on sticks.
I have attempted to go back to the source/s (Super-Bargains.com) of the code to see it we could get another copy - seller no longer in business, the listed writer - he (Rohitab Batra) tells me he never wrote such a program.
Nor can I find one just like it on the net.
I have attempted to find what was done to the code, check each page of the script, against one to the other, to see if I could find what he did.
I have taken 'parts' of each code and 'loaded' it on the server to see if that would help - well no, it did not for the most part as it may give me some part of a working program, but lose another. Also checking permission code and loading , ASCII or BASIC
I have attempted to 'change it' on the server (Blue Host - using their editors - while they have a great service center, they are not into programming), rather than up load it - same thing - try as I might, I just can not get the program to work the way it is to.
Okay - if you write cgi-perl, and would YOU like to attempt to see if you could get the program to work, or know of someone who would like to 'give it a try'. I need some help with this while not a very large 'company', just me and the wife now.
We had hoped that we could offer want those 'big' guys do for a lot less - but with the 'fall' of our auction/classifieds program - all the rest of the files we have on the net, mean almost nothing.
I would be happy to transmit you the program, one that is almost like the first one we received, to see if you could find the changes, to put it back on track.

Thank you for any help you can give us.
