Is it possible to use VMWare's VIX API for Perl programmed in CGI for website display?
I am relative new to CGI and have just done some not successful attempts.
I also need to know where I can find warnings that may be generated when I execute the CGI script?

The errors will be in the error log.  The location for this depends on what webserver you are using, what OS you are on, and your local configuration.

For apache running under nix, the default is /var/log/apache2/error.log.

CGI scripts are nothing else than perl scripts, so to troubleshoot you should try running your scripts from the command line using perl, preferably as the same user as apache runs under.
