in reply to Can't open file using Perl as CGI

By the way, I note that you are adding a line break to your print statement without using chomp; This will give you more line breaks than you (possibly) intended...
open (INFILE, '<', 'textfile.txt'); while (<INFILE>) { chomp; print "$_\n"; } close (INFILE);

    This "extra line break" was a result/remainder of some troubleshooting earlier that evening. :)
