in thread where to place the .pl fro cgi script

Having spent five years supporting a set of CGI programs that non-programmers try to install on a wide range of web hosting packages, I'm well aware of how common the standard configuration is. I'm also aware of a significant proportion of web hosting companies who seem to delight in giving customers the weirdest configurations possible.

Far too often I've confused someone by giving them the standard answer which didn't apply in their circumstances, so I've learnt that the only reasonable answer to give is "you need to ask the person who configured your web server". Your experience obviously differs from mine.

    My comment was purely about the idea that it is rare to find cgi-bin for individual users.

    I respect your knowledge and experience, and the help that you give to others on these boards
