Rather than have to upload/transfer a cgi script to my Web host and then Telnet there to test/run the script, is there a way for me to test/run the script from my own PC (offline) under Windows 95?

And hello again,

Here's the url to the compiled, and linked version of perl for win32 (windows 95), I have it installed on my computer, and it's what I use to test scripts before I upload them to my site.
It's free to download and use, and takes up very little space.

You can also browse in that area, there is a directory of demo scripts too!

http://fohnix.metronet.com/1/perlinfo/ports/win95/ActiveState/Release/Pw32i312.exe 
or
Pw32i312.zip
the first is a self extracting zip file.a

make sure you download the Pw32i version, others are for alpha chip, and source code as well.

Hope this helps you,
Robin (twexperts)
