Perl Interpretter testing Can't Post

I have downloaded the Apache Server for windows and I have also downloaded the Perl Interpretter software aswell as DCOM.

I am currently working through SAMMS teach yourself CGI and have tried a test page. The test page runs perfectly well in a web browser (IE5). So Perl IS working.
However, under a heading (in the book) "What if Something Went Wrong" I am told to run the Perl Interpretter and input the following in the command line
C:\perl\bin\perl.exe C:\apache\cgi-bin\test.cgi
and it should produce some output beginning
Content - Type........
Instead i get the error message "Backslash Found Where Operator Expected at Line 1 - near perl/". And this continues for each word with a "/" at the end.

Am i doing something wrong when typing this in or have i not completed the configuration? Can anyone help explain and to get it working properly for me? The files referred to are the correct paths.
Thank you
Paul
