.pl files opens in notepad

Postby kbc.coder » 13. June 2012 05:48

Hello Everybody,
I am new to xampp and also I am new to Perl programming.
I just tried to open the file C:\xampp\cgi-bin\printenv.pl and I made a mistake.I choose the default program open that file in notepad with the option always use the selected program to open this kind of files.
Now when I try to run .pl files from cmd it opens it in notepad instead of executing.
Please Reply.
Thanks in advance.

You need to open XAMPP via your browser, i.e. http://localhost/...

Good Luck
