You can execute perl scripts straight from the command line o if you have perl installed.

Can you do that in windows. Or is it just linux (which is the best)

It works in windows

Be sure to set the path to c:/perl/perl.exe so it will work correctly though.

November 12th, 2000, 17:36

Well setup a script . If your not sure of the path to perl on your machine goto http://www.e-scripts.com and download there freeware path finder. And then get on with making or customising your scripts :).

November 12th, 2000, 17:50

I end up with the perl source code. I changed the path to perl to C:\Perl\Bin\Perl.exe (thats what it is) and I'm using http://localhost/scriptname.cgi and I get the code. Is there anything I need to configure in apache?
November 13th, 2000, 08:29
Nope. It should automatically configure its self but if it does say something needs changing pots whatever is needed and i'll try help you sort it out :).

no errors or anything. Just what you would see if you opened the script in notepad

If you want things to work "out-of-box", try IndigoPerl. IndigoPerl is a binary build of Perl 5.6 for Win32 with an integrated Apache webserver for testing and developing CGI scripts. It also includes a browser based GUI Package Manager for installing pre-built binary packages from repositories. The package manager can also be used to build and install CPAN source modules.
Best of all, it has DBI modules compiled so you can integrate with mysql (if you have it installed).
Oh yeah, the url: http://www.indigostar.com/indigoperl.htm
Hope this helps.

cool. indigo perl worked
November 15th, 2000, 09:23
The first one should off too ... all you had todo was type in the url to the script http://127.1.0.0/cgi-bin/yourscript.pl ..... and it would work.
