Post #1 of 4
I've downloaded (and installed) ActivePerl 5.6 (on NT) and I want to run perl scripts through a browser (mostly IE) on an internal webpage. However I really don't know how I could get this to work. If I open an .pl file for Explorer Perl will run it and exit before you blink and eye (well the speed obviously is due to the simplicity of the script I tested). If I on the other hand open it through the browser it will read it as and html file and if I press 'Refresh' it will read it as and text file.
Perl scripts through browser on a local computer
So is there any way of creating a cgi-bin directory on the local harddrive and put the scripts there or is there any other way to get the perls scripts to work. (Also so that the <!--#exec cgi="/cgi-bin/whatever"--> tag would work).
Hopefully you got my point :-)
