cgi error in from apache


Hi I am trying to get my cgi-bin dir working. Apache is giving me this 500 error.
Quote:
Premature end of script headers: first.pl
The script is located here http://lsu.homelinux.com/cgi-bin/first.pl . It is a simple pearl script just the echo the words "Hello World", but I can't seem to figure out what the problem is.

Regards,
nrmx

Sounds to me like you are not printing out an htlm header of any kind. Try putting
Code:
use CGI qw(:standard);
print header;
at the top of the CGI script. This will send a standard head to the browser. If you still get an error post a copy of the script.

HTH
