How to print a file

How should I print a file through a SSI HTML document.
<!-- exec cgi="myfile.cgi" -->

and this output goes like this

if date = 01 then
print file=/home/www/mydir/dates-dir/01.html
if date = 02 then
print file=/home/www/mydir/dates-dir/02.html

where the 02.html is going to be inserted as a content inside of the of a SSI HTML document on the fly.

if possible can you show some Perl code to accomplish this task?

Thank you,

#!/usr/local/bin/perl
$date=[ I don't know where you get the date from? ];
$file="/home/www/mydir/dates-dir/".sprintf("%02d",$date).".html";
die "Can't read $path - $!" unless -r $file;
open(F,"<$file");
while(<F>) {
   # You can do some more stuff here with the file
   print;
}
close(F);

Hope this helps
