Changing the filename to junk.cgi worked.

I definitely think that filenames *.pl are associated with something or
other on my Windows 95 machine, because a little yellow ball occurs next to
the filename in the explorer. But when I view filetypes in My Computer, I
cannot find that little yellow ball.

Does anyone know how I can search out this file association on Windows 95?
