How to make a dynamic "path to Perl" with mod_rewrite in Apache?

Hello,

I have follow problem:
I work with a Apache server offline. When I create a new Perl project then I have to point in the Perl script to Perl.exe
for example "#!c:\xampp\perl\bin\perl.exe"
Later when I want upload the Perl project then I have to change in all scripts the path to perl, for example "#!/usr/bin/perl"

This process is very tiresome. I want change the path to Perl with the Apache Modul mod_rewrite dynamically.
The rewrite modul should change automatically all path to perl into "#!c:\xampp\perl\bin\perl.exe"
I would be very grateful, when some guy could help me!!

Thank you in advance!
Mike

It is impossible to do with mod_rewrite, because perl is interpreted outside from apache.

But I think you don't need this, because as I know the windows don't uses perl script's first line to identify the interpreter (but possibly I know wrong this (I have no experience with web server and perl on windows), however to run perl from windows (not from webserver) nedded only file association)
