By far the easiest way for assured compatibility is to download the Perl Addon and follow the installation instructions in the readme-addon-perl.txt file accessible from this location:
http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-windows.html#644

Read the note in red if you want or need to use Mod_Perl. If you don't need or want to use it then ignore this message as it will not affect the installation of the addon.

If you need to use Mod_Perl then you will have to install XAMPP version 1.6.3a not 1.6.4 from the XAMPP SourceForge Archive located from a link on this page at the top, as this 1.6.3a version uses a version of Apache that is compatible with Mod_Perl.

BTW the Perl Addon uses Active Perl from ActiveState.

Here is some reading at Apache about CGI that may come in handy.

Happy Perling. :)
