Running Perl scripts
Posted 02 January 2006 - 03:28 AM
How can I run Perl script interactively?
I could create Perl scripts and place them in cgi-bin and run it using http://localhost/scriptname.pl
I found Perl.exe in W:\usr\bin. I could type stuff in it, but received no response.
What am I missing?

I also believe that for that method to work, Perl has to installed in the system.. as in Registry Information and things like that.. thats why PPM does not work on Uniform Server.
I will look into it annd get back to you.

I downloaded Active Perl and installed it and then copied perl.exe and perl58.dll from c:\perl\usr\bin to w:\usr\bin and the entire contents of c:\perl\user\lib to w:\usr\lib.
Having done this I found I could open a command prompt in w:\usr\bin and execut the following at the command line: -
This carried on working even after uninstalling Active Perl!
I can only guess that some entries in w:\usr\lib were missing (I needed to update perl.exe and perl58.dll to fix complaints about file versions - I appear to be running a newer version of Perl now...)
As I said,
Hope it helps...

I've played a bit more since, and this works for me on a fresh copy of the Uniform server...
Download the Active Perl Zipped archive.
Overwrite the perl.exe and perl58.dll files that the Uniform server uses (in diskw\usr\bin) with new versions from the archive.
Overwrite the entire contents of the user\lib directory and sub directories that the Uniform Server uses (diskw\usr\lib) with the usr\lib files from the archive.
The Active Perl download is no longer needed...
Fire up the Uniform server then open a command prompt in w:\usr\bin
You should now be able to execute command line perl scripts in the command prompt window in the following manner
perl.exe w:\...path to perl file...\perl_file.pl
(I my case with SquirrelMail it was perl.exe w:\www\config\conf.pl)
There must be some files "missing" from usr\lib in the Uniform server setup that stop the command line working, unfortunately I dont know enough about Active Perl to figure out which ones
Hope this makes sense...

i have installed SquirrelMail and place all files at "w:\www\mail"
but when i running the configuration file (http://localhost/mail/config/conf.pl), it can run!
why and how to do it?

AddHandler cgi-script .bat .exe .pl .cgiand
Action application/x-perl "/usr/bin/perl"(which are of course, commented by default) in his httpd.conf?

Maybe it's because he hasn't uncommentedAddHandler cgi-script .bat .exe .pl .cgiandAction application/x-perl "/usr/bin/perl"(which are of course, commented by default) in his httpd.conf?
Sorry about the confusion I caused, I've realized what I was missing in this post:
Ok, sorry for all that nonsense.
I take back what I said.
Now I know that "ScriptAlias" does the same thing as "AddHandler cgi-script .pl .cgi", thanks for telling me
