This web page executes Perl scripts that return return information back to you. I open up a separate browser window to display the results.
Download and install Perl on the server to get these examples running. If your running Windows I would install Active Perl.
Next create a directory under the root of your web server called: cgi-bin\perl
MS IIS Ex: C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\cgi-bin\perl
Now copy all of the .pl files you extracted from the .zip file into this directory. I have placed the .pl files in the same directory as the html files just for training/downloading.
Next, configure your web server to allow "Executibles".
Win 2000 Professional MS IIS
Start, Programs, Administrative Tools
Click on the Machine name.
Select the web site ("Default Web Site" is common).
Select the "cgi-bin" directory.
Right Click, then Properties.

Your ready to test the examples below.
