I am writing a script using Perl and wish to pass the script a parameter. I also want to use the script as a server side include, for instance: <--!#exec cgi="/cgi-bin/test.cgi?datafile"-->

Is this possible to do and if so what is the code I should use in the script to assign the parameter to a variable.

If you invoke your script like you have there, as a cgi= in the #exec command, you can pass whatever arguments you like after the ?.  You need to do so in the conventional way, although, pairing up values with named variables like so:

cgi="/cgi-bin/test.cgi?datafile=file.name&paramter2=somethingelse"

This will pass in two variables, "datafile" and "paramter2" with the same method as a GET method form submission (where the CGI arguments are appended to the URL).  If this needs more clarification, please let me know with a return comment.
