in reply to Webhosting with Perl/CGI

Thank you all!
Have installed XAMPP (portable) for Win32 now. (I am afraid that the Plack is a mental overload for me :-( )
XAMPP has a "Mini-Perl" however, i.e. without any modules.
Is it possible to "exchange" Mini-Perl to a real Perl installation (or to link XAMPP to my installed ActivePerl)?

      Thank you, this was really helpful!
      First, after changing the shebang I could use my installed ActivePerl.
      Second, it appears that only Lite version of XAMPP comes with miniPerl, the "real" one comes with Perl 5.10 with a lot of modules and with ppm etc. to install some other ones.

    Actually, you don't need to know anything about Plack or read all the documentation. Just install the modules YourMother has listed and use the command as shown, just replace the path with the path to your cgi script. Should be all you need.

    My XAMPP experience is limited to Windows so ... In your cgi script put the location of the perl you wish to use on the shebang line.
