dont  you have to open the file before printing :-)
You have to print out a header before you print to the web page;  there's a couple of ways to do that.

(1) (preferred method) use the library:

use CGI qw(:standard);
print header();

(2) Print the header directly:

print "Content-type: text/html \n\n";

One of these two methods has to occur in your program prior to any other print out.
