Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Ive started learning perl development with dbi to mysql. I have managed to read from tables etc. i have now started reading abit on cgi on apache, and made a little script based on one i made before reading form the mysql. It just does not work, can anyone please help
The error i get is:
Global symbol "$string1" requires explicit package name at c:\PROGRA~1\APACHE~1\apache\cgi-bin\test.cgi line 12.
Global symbol "$sth" requires explicit package name at c:\PROGRA~1\APACHE~1\apache\cgi-bin\test.cgi line 13.
Global symbol "$dbh" requires explicit package name at c:\PROGRA~1\APACHE~1\apache\cgi-bin\test.cgi line 13.
Global symbol "$string1" requires explicit package name at c:\PROGRA~1\APACHE~1\apache\cgi-bin\test.cgi line 13.
Global symbol "$sth" requires explicit package name at c:\PROGRA~1\APACHE~1\apache\cgi-bin\test.cgi line 14.
Global symbol "$string1" requires explicit package name at c:\PROGRA~1\APACHE~1\apache\cgi-bin\test.cgi line 20.
Execution of c:\PROGRA~1\APACHE~1\apache\cgi-bin\test.cgi aborted due to compilation errors.
And my script is:
$dbh = DBI->connect('dbi:mysql:exelstock');
use CGI qw(:standard);
use CGI::Carp qw(warningsToBrowser fatalsToBrowser);
#prepare and execute SQL statement
$string1 = "Show tables";
$sth = $dbh->prepare($string1);
die "Could not execute SQL statement ... maybe invalid?";
Im doing this develpment as part of my university group, the laptop we use, is windows im afraid. It has activeperl, my sql, apache all installed and scripts run all ok, just when i try to access a mysql table using DBI it doesnt work, i am very new to perl, dbi, cgi
when i use appache i usually grab the 6 inch thick manual "Apache Server Unleased" I also have the "Samba Unleashed" I do how ever have the pdf "Apache Server Unleased" if you want and have a big enough email box i could send it to you.
possible solution is " what the heck happened to ms windows? How did linux get installed on here?"
I dont know how it is installed on ms winders i use linux and nikki your correct on linux
