Running CGI script direct from windows?

Running CGI script direct from windows? Can't Post

I am using a freeware discussionboard (written in perl-cgi) that utilises CGI script - that all works fine. My site is hosted on Win98 and uses MS-PWS-3.

However I want to add an option that allows users to post messages from an email, that arrives at a server hosted on the same machine. The perl/CGI file is there, but it was really designed for a UNIX system where the email can be redirected to a file (the script).

How can I call the script from DOS/Windows? If I have a mail message in a file 'mail.eml' , and my cgi script runs in C:\scripts\mail.cgi can I call it in some way like:

C:\scripts\mail.cgi mail.eml

? Say from a dos prompt - or better still a batch file?
