CGI Error

I am running an apache server with cgi enabled. I put ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /usr/local/apache/cgi-bin/ in to my httpd.conf file.
I am just trying to run this script:
Content-type: text/html
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
print "Hello, World.";

But when ever I run the script it gives me this error:
Premature end of script headers:
I've read through the apace cgi tutorial but that didn't help at all. Does any one know what this error means?

the shebang line is hopefully the first line in your script ? it has to spaces before....nothing...
also try not to print the HTTP header, but use the following line:
use CGI qw(:standard);
if that still doesnt work, look at the apache error logs, they contain the most usefull infos what went wrong ^^
