getting past step one.
I've decided to learn perl but I'm off to a rough start. My first program, monkey.cgi, I got from Elizabeth Castro's book "Perl and CGI for the WWW. Here it is verbatum:
print"show me the monkey";
Pretty simple, huh? I used WS_PRO to upload it to my cgi bin, made sure I checked the ASCII button, and then went to my cgi-bin and changed the permission to 755. When I use my browser (IE5)to view my work of art I get the "download" option of open from current location or save it to disk. What might I be doing wrong?
