kiat has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm curious how on this site the file index.pl is parsed by the server as the default file. Most servers treat index.html or index.htm as the default file. How does one make index.pl or index.cgi the default file like index.html? I would to have, say, www.mysite.com/index.cgi, automatically loads up when the site www.mysite.com is accessed. How does one do that? Is it a server side thing that can only be done by the server hosting company?
Thanks in anticipation.
