Hi, first a question (Sorry): Is there a sample configuration file shipped
with Pi3Perl? I just started with it and in vain looked for a working sample
configuration. Did I overlook something?

I'm also very new with Pi3Perl. So far as I know the embedded Perl interpreter
means that you can access the PIAPI's directly. But I think that you can use
the example how to access  server-variables (the common CGI-environment is just
copy of selected server variables). When you look into the auth.pl example,
you'll find how to lookup the field "Authorization" in the request-database.
Some more additional info you'll find in the server documentation too

Don't know the configuration of the Pi3WebPerl-object at this time, sorry.
But I think this is not your current problem. I think Pi3Perl needs another
approach than you got used to with standard CGI. (Correct English?)

Ask me again later. But from my point of view I can't see a configuration
problem on your side now. At the moment I have one.
