in thread Perl from PHP

I did (I used /public_html/cgi-bin/ and the full host path, both of those searched for pages that didn't exist. When using the one posted, it just goes to a blank white page (which is strange it seems the script would show up there) and the script doesn't run. I have also tried running the script as ".cgi" with no change in results either.

    You may be missing this in your Perl cgi script:

    print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";

    In Perl you absolutely need this as your first output string to print a HTML page.

    Testing never proves the absence of faults, it only shows their presence.
