Thanks for your help so far but I have another problem as below:
I am using the following http://localhost/xampp/simon/ and all works fine but i want to run perl / cgi scripts, I am under the impresion that I dont need a shebang line as I am on windowz is this correct ?
Also where is the cgi-bin OR what one do I use ? do I create a cgi-bin folder in my web folder " simon " ?
Any help is most apreciated, expecialy if it is supplied in ideot mode as I am a newbie
