in reply to Perl CGI, IIS and other unholy unions

Wild guess:

Your script uses such a simple subset of Perl that it's concievable that other languages (e.g., JScript) might be able to execute it. Is it possible that the IIS server you're having problems with doesn't have .cgi mapped to Perl? Do other, more complicated Perl scripts work on that box?

    This script is labeled *.pl, and the server (I'm told) is mapping .pl to Perl. I'm fairly confident it's Perl.exe running it.
    If I use CGI.pm to build a simple form, it does work (unless I use commas to delimit my parts in the "print()").
