When I run this  simple cgi program, I get an Internal Server Error.

        #!/usr/bin/perl
        print "Content-type: text/html\r\n\r\n";
        print "Hello, World.";

Apache log files show the following error:

[Fri Aug 30 15:17:04 2002] [error] (8)Exec format error: exec of /var/www/cgi-bin/first.pl failed
[Fri Aug 30 15:17:04 2002] [error] [client 236.200.2.103] Premature end of script headers: /var/www/cgi-bin/first.pl  

Any idea what this means?
Thanks!
