it's easy to run Perl scripts within PI3 but you've to disregard some

- Make sure, that perl.exe (the perl interpreter's executable) is in
your search path.
- Notice, that the extension for perl scripts is by default *.pl
- If you want to change this or to run perl without a search path entry
follow this steps:

   0. shut down pi3 server
   1. Change to your PI3WEB directory 
   2. Enter the CONF directory 
   3. Open file CONFIG.PI3 
   4. find line CommandLineByExt .pl="perl %p%q" 
   5. add a line/modify this line to CommandLineByExt
.cgi="c:\\perl32\\bin\\perl.exe %p%q"
   6. save your changes

Hope this helps.
