in thread Perl 500 error

Er... what?

If there was no "use CGI" in the OP's program, then it's very unlikely that he'd get a "can't find CGI,pm" error message, isn't it?

    ... but the program as posted contains no such line.

      I think the post is confusing people:

      "However if I use a simple hello.pl page it works perfect in the browser "

      Then:

      "However when I try to load the actual script 'step1.pl'"

      Basically, they're not showing the code (step1.pl) which produces the error.

        That is what I was thinking..
