sharmin,
CGI is configured on your web server. If you are running windows 98 you need to download the NT service pack with the personal web server on it. The one that comes with windows does not support cgi from what I remember. Perl is a server side language and the browser does not parse the information. As far as the perl bath normally if you use activestate it is in c:\perl\bin\perl.exe I believe. You can also try doing a search.

Enjoy!

Hi

To run cgi-scripts from your browser on your win98 system, you need to download apache(web-server) and AtivePerl.

download apache http://www.apache.org/httpd.html

then you need to d/l ActivePerl http://download.cnet.com/downloads/0-10085-100-1557008.html?tag=st.dl.10001_103_1.lst.td

first install then apache as c:\apache then install perl in the apache directory, so that way the bin directory(perl.exe) will be in the apache directory

by default to run cgi-script you need the .pl extension example cure.pl

and you path to perl will be #!/apache/bin/perl

Cure

Hi,

thank you both for your help, much appreciated.

Cure,

I already have apache and activePerl installed. My apache path is: c:\perl\lib\CGI\apache
I'm not sure about ActivePerl, because it seems I only have the online documentation.
My perl path is c:\perl\bin\perl.
So, now how do I run cgi scripts from my browser?
