Question about using cgi script as website's main/home/index page
Posted on 2006-04-22
When you reach the main (index) page of my website, it currently
redirects you to a CGI script.
So in other words, if you go to domain.com/, it redirects you to
With PERL, Is there a better way to do that than a redirect? I know in
PHP, you can just call the file index.php and it will load when a person
requests domain.com. Is there a CGI alternative to that?
Does index.shtml do the same thing? I was under the impression
that you have to *specifically* use .shtml in the URL for it to work.
I'm aware of some less-attractive alternatives - JS includes, AJAX,
frames, etc. - but any ideas/suggestions are welcome.
