if you are truly "required" to use for other than for academic purposes, you should be aware that, in the words of "(it has) largely been superseded by -- a much larger object oriented cgi processing module." You can readily obtain that current standard for free from CPAN or from a vendor of windows implementations such as Active State.

Security is one of the considerations. If an employer is requiring use of, you should probably protect yourself and the employer by warning of the potential for problems.

If you must use because of academic requirements, the file itself contains useful explanatory material; simply open it with your editor. You can find much additional material on both the issues and it's use, by SEARCHing here (which turns up nodes such as and by googling the filename. (Oddly, and perhaps owing to caffeine deficiency or the lateness of the hour, I found no pod in the copy I retain -- for no really good reason -- but generally, pods are useful resources.)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
