I have installed httpd 1.3.33 on Mac OS 10.4.5 and couldn't get CGI
Perl scripts to work. I found that this is not a httpd problem, but
some weirdness in the directory.
When I execute a Perl script e.g. "test.pl" (print "testing"; exit;)
with the extension .pl in the /usr/local/apache/cgi-bin directory, the
script hangs. The very same script in a different directory runs ok.
When I cp the script to "test" (without the extension), it executes
normally. It appears that something is preventing the execution of
files with the extension .pl Is this intended? Can this be changed?
If this is a feature, what is this good for?
Thanks for some insight.
