HOWTO: Pi3Web and ActiveState PerlIS.dll

I did some research and here's the deal with Pi3Web and PerlIs.dll

When I last tried Pi3Web with PerlIS.dll it worked fine, but that was
an older version, - to try that version get PerlIS.bin and Perl100.bin from
rename them to .dll and put them in your Isapi directory.

Place the following 3 line perl program in your WebRoot directory, call
it Hello.pl

print "HTTP/1.0 200 OK\r\n";
print "Content-Type: text/html\r\n\r\n";
print "Hello World!";

** No other configuration **

Now hit the URL


And you should see 'Hello World'.

The problem appears to be that the new version of PerlIS.dll is no
longer compatible with Pi3Web - probably the ISAPI module of Pi3Web
needs to be updated - unfortunately I have no time to do this.

Do you mind if I forward this answer to the users group (pi3-users@johnroy.com)
as it would be valuable information there. The mailing list archive gets
published on my website?

Hope this helps,
