Hi,
   I'm trying to run Perl scripts (as CGI scripts) in Tomcat 6.0 for Windows XP (MSI installation). However, it seems that if I try to configure Tomcat 6.0 to run Perl, Tomcat just stopped serving any pages at all. According to Tomcat manual:

http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-6.0-doc/cgi-howto.html

it says the CGI servlet and servlet mapping in web.xml has to be uncommented, which I did. However, once I do that and restart Tomcat, it doesn't function anymore. Does anyone know how to configure Tomcat 6.0 to run Perl and also functional normally? Thanks in advance.
