Re: Perl Problems
ViewEnv.exe is not a perl program - it won't help you with perl. If
you have installed perl and followed the instructions below you should
be about to write a simple perl program (1 line)
print "Content-Type: text/html\r\n\r\nHello World!"
place this file in your cgi-bin directory, call it test.pl.
check that it works by type the following from a command prompt
box in the cgi-bin directory
DOS> perl test.pl
you should see
If you got that far you should be able to access the URL
from your browser and see
Note that ViewEnv.exe had a bug that is now fixed in 1.0.2
