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

Hello Monks, I have a perl, cgi based system that runs on the internet. My question is very basic and I'm sure there is a simple answer, I have been using a perl editor to test individual cgi programs on my windows xp (stand alone) machine. I then FTP the test module to the internet site and all works fine. My Question is how do I get this same system to run using Windows XP (stand alone)? WHen using the editor I always get a download screen when trying to executing a module other than the one I am testing. I hope I have nade myself understandable and I thank all Monks for help you have provided in the past.
