Perl scripts on a Win98 pc?
Posted on 2000-04-13
I need to build some interactive stuff on a remote NT box. so:
1-is there any way to debug perl cgi scripts when you can't get to a command line?
I thought I'd put perl on my pc and use Win98's Personal Web Server. Only perl I could find was 46 megs (!) of v. 5.6 from ActivePerl--nothing earlier or simpler.
In any case, PWS doesn't seem to recognize/find it. (yes, guys. perl seems to run its own example scripts perfectly well, so I assume IT is installed ok.)
Is this combination IMpossible, and if so, is there anything else that works?
Else: (back to first question, but local now): is there any way to debug perl cgi scripts on a Win98 pc?
