Hi Guys

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

No. Perl is Perl and Perl via CGI needs a shebang.

Also where is the cgi-bin OR what one do I use ?

"\xampp\perl\bin\perl.exe"

do I create a cgi-bin folder in my web folder " simon " ?

Or you can use the existing folder "\xampp\cgi-bin".

There is much to learn. Perl under CGI is a bear to deal with. Get a good background.
