Subject RE: [users@httpd] Calling .pl file with Apache, Windows XP, file1.pl works, file2.pl doesn't
Date Wed, 22 Feb 2006 20:08:41 GMT
I think you simply mixed up the order of method calls from CGI.pm

Your script needs to write the HTTP header first.
That's why the "print header" must come before
"print start_html".

If you are using the methods from CGI.pm
(which is always preferable)
then you can safely ignore worrying about formatting 
your own HTTP header.
So ommit the Content-type line.

Actually, you can easily verify that CGI.pm is 
formatting the propper header for you.
Try this at the shell (or windows cmd.exe)


# perl -MCGI -le '$cgi=CGI->new;print
$cgi->header,$cgi->start_html'
Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1
