in reply to How to Make use of CGI with Perl

Peanut Galley Opinion

I do the following and do well. My website is a standard Linux hosting situation.

But I draw everything up on a Windows box. I use ActiveState Perl and the Xitami Web Server ( Unless I forgot something, all I did was make a directory called cgi-bin under the Xitami directory, placed my cgi-scripts there, and was up and running cgi-scripts on http://localhost/ on the Windows box.

As long as I use non platform specific Perl, my cgi-scripts run about the same on xitami-windows as linux-apache. The benefit IMO is that I could care less how to configure a web server. The Xitami web server on Windows is extremely simple to install, and puts a stop/start service in the control panel. Easy, easy.
