CGI Scripts by Bill Weinman

test.cgi

This is a very simple script for testing a server's CGI interface. By using a minimal script you can concentrate on finding out what is required to run a Perl/CGI script on your server.

Here is the source code for test.cgi. Copy/paste this code into your text editor, and make sure that the line

#!/usr/bin/perl
is the first line in the file.


#!/usr/bin/perl

print foreach (
    "Content-Type: text/plain\n\n",
    "BW Test version 5.0\n",

);

my $q = CGI::Vars();
