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

Hello Gurus, I have installed win32::ASP on my Win NT box. currently, I am able to run/execute the pl/cgi scripts which are placed on Apache web server on Win NT box. And now, I have installed win32::ASP. How to invoke the *.asp files, which are written using this win32::ASP module (perlscript). I searched the web, getting information how to write the *.asp file using win32::ASP module but, unable to find the how to configure and execute from Apache web server on Win NT box. Please, kindly give me information. Thanks in advance. Regards, ~ SubbaReddy .M

    Win32::ASP is if you already have an ASP environment, usually under IIS. It allows you to interact with much of it as though it were CGI, though less than Win32::ASP::CGI. As dhable pointed out, what you do in fact desire is Apache::ASP.

    I'm not the leading expert on ASP but I'll try to answer some of your questions. First, I found a nice site over at apache-asp.org that provides ASP support to Apache. I believe the problem is that Win32::ASP allows Perl code to execute inside ASP (aka PerlScript) but the web server is already aware of how to handle ASP. I don't believe Apache knows about ASP until you setup a module. Apache::ASP looks like it will enable Apache to detect and process ASP. Good luck!
      Apache::ASP (which the apache-asp.org site is about) is compatible with ASP using PerlScript, but it is a different beast. It runs on mod_perl, so you have to install an Apache built with mod_perl to run it. (Technically CGI is supported, but it would be much too slow for real use.)

      Normal PerlScript ASP stuff is done on IIS, not Apache. You can get information on it from ActiveState.
