         I am not an expert on Tomcat 4, but am 90% sure that it cannot 
begin execution of any executable program/script other than a servlet/JSP. 
My understanding (which may be flawed) of this issue is that, if you want 
to run both Perl and servlets, you must put an Apache web server in front 
of Tomcat and have it process requests according to whether they invoke 
Perl files (e.g., the request is for a file whose suffix is ".pl") or a 
servlet (which typically has a different suffix, to wit, ".jsp" or 
".java"). Apache would process requests for the former via CGI and send 
requests for the latter to Tomcat.
