Hi,

I've just installed Active Perl on my Windows 2000 web server hoping to run a specific CGI script but it doesn't work.

When I access the script (which is an anti-spam measure called wpoison) all I get is the script itself displaying as a text file however I have managed to run the script from a command prompt and get (on the screen at least) the bogus HTML file it is designed to generate.

I know virtually nothing about Perl so be a little, um, kind trying to explain this :)

I added the .cgi application mapping but that didn't work so I edited to mimic the .pl mapping and that did. Then I found the script didn't work perfectly so I ended up having to hack that too ... hmmm ... python seems easier at this point :)
