Web servers are configured with a set of default filenames to look for when a request specifies a directory (i.e., ends in "/"). The usual defaults include "index.html" (or "default.htm" on some Microsoft servers). Your web server may include "index.cgi" in this list. If so, rename x.pl to index.cgi.

If you're using Apache, find the DirectoryIndex directive in apache.conf for the list of defaults that Apache will look for.
