Depending on which version of perl you got, you will get one of the following from perldoc -q 500

My CGI script runs from the command line but not the browser.  (500 Server Error)
          Several things could be wrong. You can go through the
          "Troubleshooting Perl CGI scripts" guide at

                  http://www.perl.org/troubleshooting_CGI.html

          If, after that, you can demonstrate that you've read the FAQs
          and that your problem isn't something simple that can be easily
          answered, you'll probably receive a courteous and useful reply
          to your question if you post it on
          comp.infosystems.www.authoring.cgi (if it's something to do with
          HTTP or the CGI protocols). Questions that appear to be Perl
          questions but are really CGI ones that are posted to
          comp.lang.perl.misc are not so well received.

          The useful FAQs, related documents, and troubleshooting guides
          are listed in the CGI Meta FAQ:

This should be the first response to every question dealing with perl and error 500. The 2nd response should be "where's the sourcecode?"
