vhn2000 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

hi all, I've ran into something rather strange. I installed apache on my windows box, set it up to run some sample Soap::Lite code.I'm lost at this behavior.

so i'd have: => client code
demo.cgi => server code

if i run the from command line(perl, i'd get the html content of the default page in the directory(index.html). Now if i run from the browser(http://server/, i get the expected result("hello word"). Both attempts are ran on the same machine. here's my result:
c:\Program Files (x86)\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\cgi-bin>pe +rl SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Client::send_receive: POST http://localhost/dem +o.cgi HTTP /1.1 Accept: text/xml Accept: multipart/* Accept: application/soap Content-Length: 401 Content-Type: text/xml; charset=utf-8 SOAPAction: "Demo#hi" <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi="http:/ +/www.w3.or g/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:soapenc=" +oap/encodi ng/" xmlns:xsd="" soap:encodingStyle=" +http://sch" xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.or +g/soap/env elope/"><soap:Body><hi xmlns="Demo" xsi:nil="true" /></soap:Body></soa +p:Envelope > SOAP::Transport::HTTP::Client::send_receive: HTTP/1.1 200 OK Connection: close Date: Wed, 15 Aug 2012 22:07:56 GMT Accept-Ranges: bytes ETag: "100000000f854-2c-3e95575ae9680" Server: Apache/2.2.22 (Win32) Content-Length: 44 Content-Type: text/html Last-Modified: Sat, 20 Nov 2004 19:16:26 GMT Client-Date: Wed, 15 Aug 2012 22:07:56 GMT Client-Peer: Client-Response-Num: 1 <html><body><h1>It works!</h1></body></html>

    Welcome here.

    I can't find or understand your question. Is there a question? What do you want to know?

      what I'm wondering is why when i run the client code via command line - it doesn't work. but when i run the client code via browser by typing the http://localhost/, i was able to get the expected value.

        So you have a script, which we do not know and which you do not show. And this script seems to produce different output depending on how it was called.

        Well, without seeing the relevant code, it's hard to guess (at least for me). Sorry.
