Can you tell me why I can't get a simple Perl5 CGI program that is placed in the cgi-bin directory of my Personal Web Server to work. I have installed Perl5. Incidentally, the CGI script has a standard windows default icon and is just called "CGI File" - is it set up correctly? I have the cgi-lib.pl file placed in this directory too with a yellow icon (i.e. it's recognised as a perl file). Although the simple CGI doesn't use this file. If I rename the .CGI to .PL then it tries to download. Normally it comes up with HTTP 500 Internal Server Error - problem with page you are trying to reach.
I have a feeling it's somethingto do with the first line:
as the file has been placed in "wwwroot/cgi-bin".
Hope you can help.
