in reply to Begginer: Need help on implementing web Perl code on Windows

Your english is better than I could ever hope for my Spanish!

Joost's suggestion of XAMPP to easily get a working Apache install is probably your best bet.

But, if you will be using Windows 98, it includes Personal Web Server, and there are ways for it to use Perl. This might be useful: http://www.danchan.com/feature/2000/10/16/cgiwin/cgiwin.htm

This also helped a lot in my Perl on Win32 quest: http://www.northbound-train.com/perlwin32.html

I have not run Apache or Personal Web Server on Windows 98 in a very long time, so the best I can offer is the link and my best wishes for your success!

    One more thought re servers: if you are truly stuck on W98.2, I would (personal experience: anecdotal, non evidentiary) commend (first) Apache or (second) Xitami. And -- not merely anecdotal -- clean and defrag your registry. I'm of the school that holds that occurances of BSODs increase rapidly as W98 reg becomes more complex.

    If you're working on your own machine, you'll have a great deal more freedom to create a useful environment than is likely if you're in thrall to the self-annointed "high priests" who reign in too many IT departments. If so, and your CS background gave you any Linux knowledge, then prior recommendations to use it should be considered. Takes a lot less oomph in the hardware department to do equivalent tasks!

    welcome aboard!
