running perl cgi's offline

are there any programs that will allow me to run my cgi scripts offline, ie run them locally on my computer?

is there a plug-in, or something, for Internet explorer?

To run Perl scripts, you need perl.
You will need a web server as well.  Assuming that we are talking Windows here I agree with the above from ozo and would suggest ZBServer as a webserver.  It is available as shareware.  I have developed loads of scripts locally using the combination of these.

Well, you don't need a server to run the scripts, but you do need one to invoke them with CGI
You could write the server in Perl, or obtain any of the available web servers such as jhurst's suggested ZBServer.

This question was awarded, but never cleared due to the JSP-500 errors of that time.  It was "stuck" against userID -1 versus the intended expert whom you awarded.  This corrects the problem and the expert will now receive these points; points verified.

This is the Community Support link, if help is needed, along with the link to All Topics which reflects many TAs recently added.  Also in the Community Support link is a question on how experts can help, if they wish, on the cleaning of old and abandoned questions.
