Hmm. BlueHost lists a bunch of CGI:: modules that are available. I thought I needed to see CGI qw or something like that. There are many CGI:: modules installed at BlueHost. Maybe that means I don't need to do anything special for qw? Is there a way to test that easily? Thanks, Tom aka DrGo

    qw is not a module. It is Perl syntax. See perlop on the "Quotes and Quote-like Operators". qw is a quote-like operator, like ', ", q and qq.

      Thanks. The modules all have the :: I guess.

      I was able to run a simple perl script with use CGI qw

[Discipulus]: me waterpolo? oh no! i'm a no sport; the tournment was for the elder son
[karlgoethebier]: good morning
[Corion]: Discipulus: Ah, so he's the one getting almost drowned all the time - waterpolo certainly is no sport for me ;)
[karlgoethebier]: Corion: buy enough coke and popcorn...
[marto]: Corion the cinema is a lot more expensive than I remember :P
Discipulus hates the smell of popcorn at cinemas..
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, most of the time, I prefer to watch stuff at home, where we can sit on the couch, order pizza and pause the movie. But for kids,...
[Corion]: ... I think the "cinema experience" is something of its own. But certainly, bringing an USB stick home is much easier ;-D
