I tried it like cal.pl?cal=&&ls cal.pl?cal=2008&&dir cal.pl;dir and other combinations but it doesn't execute next command, just string arguments...
(I suppose it's not spoiler since it doesn't work)

You're close. if I was you, I wouldn't worry about paying arguments to the Php script manually and use the text box directly. I solved this mission on my phone without doing much url editing. Also, but be careful with the details, it's close to being a spoiler.

I tried what I thought would be the correct, but after reproducing the script locally I see that this results in a "Permission Denied". Am I supposed to circumvent a certain protection measure, or am I targeting the wrong part?


Doesn't require knowledge of perl. Imagine what you enter is entered on to a command line via "$ cal.pl <input>"

What would you put in for <input> that allows you to list files?

Try not to look down on me for this, but I've never run a unix-like in any serious capacity. I tried one time with VMware, but that didn't work out for... reasons I think had to do with my accessibility needs? As I recall, I couldn't get the on-screen keyboard (neither osk.exe on the Windows host machine nor the on-screen keyboard built into the guest operating system) to work with VMware. Can't really run setup commands (e.g. sudo apt <something>) if you can neither type physically nor virtually.
However, after realizing that git (which I DO have installed on my system) includes mingw, a bash shell, I decided to try something in that about an hour after reading your message (after spending most of that our scratching my head). Got it, thanks!
hi, I'm your friendly neighborhood BSIT student and computer science enthusiast. I have a spinal cord injury that prevents me from typing with my hands, but I don't let that stop me (*cough cough* virtual keyboard).
