Dynamically Enumerating Files

I'm looking to make a real simple script.  Heres what I want to accomplish.
Have the script look in a specific directory, enumerate all the ".htm" files and then output in HTML links to those pages in that directory.  I know it's real easy to do, but I have never worked with this before.  It was kind of shoved into my lap.
This is going to be on an NT server running IIS4.0 and Active State.   I'm really unsure on how to enumerate the files, I think I can figure out the HTML output by example, but I haven't seen any examples that would help me out with extracting the file names and such.  If anyone has an example similiar to this or can just help me out it would be really appreciated. Thanks.

Here it is in perl:

print "Content-type: text/html<br>\n\n";
my($dir) = "C:\\users\\Powers";
opendir(DIR, $dir) || die "Unable to open $dir: $!";

my(@files) = grep {/\.htm$/i && -f "$dir\\$_"} readdir(DIR);
foreach (@files) {
    print "<a href=\"$dir\\$_\">$_</A><br>\n"
}

That seems to work great, but I'm having one other problem which may or may not be related.  I can run that just fine from the command prompt on NT, and the HTML looks to be correct.  But when I open it with a browser it will still run the script, ( I see a little command window pop up) but the HTML is not loaded into the browser.  What exactly am I missing?  Thanks!

It's not related at all... your server is not correctly configured.
