Could someone show me how you'd use the "-d" perl command within an actual cgi script?  I need to debug scripts and am not sure how exactly the -d command opperates.  Any help would be great!

You can't use the Perl debugger for debugging CGI scripts while they're being called from a web server.  The cgi.pm module supports being called with CGI-like arguments from a command line, so you can do a lot of debugging with that before you go with real CGI.  Also, be sure to turn on warnings with -w (or $^W = 1) and "use strict".
