in reply to Simple Perl print() output redirect to html/webpage.

If you need to write everything thet print writes to a file, use select:

open my $html, ">", /srv/www/mystatus.htm; select $html;
If you want to call your Perl script from a webserver, you need to use CGI or CGI::Simple.

Please specify what exactly you want.

Sorry if my advice was wrong.

    My problem with using PHP passthru() is that it uses the user nobody to execute. The user nobody doesn't have write access & also PGP will not work with nobody and it is not recommended to give such access to nobody.

    My script returns 6 lines of print() statements, I dont want to make it a CGI script and add all the CGI related info to it. Can I create another CGI script and call it from within just to print my lines?

      Why not? You can use the backtick operator or do + Capture::Tiny to get the stdout of your script.
