How can I run a perl and cgi scripts in my apache.?.
 
What should I do to enable my apache server to execute perl and cgi scipts at any place in my root directory?

When I open it in my browser this usually comes out..
Code:

Access forbidden!
You don't have permission to access the requested object. It is either read-protected or not readable by the server.

If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.

Error 403

It isn't a good idea to open up your root directory (i.e. /) to your web server. Why do you want to? If you have the typical linux web server, your web server root should be /var/www and your perl and cgi scripts should be in /var/www/cgi-bin.

RTFM
Instead of RTFM (i.e. Read the F@@#ing Manual), an insulting profanity, why not PRTM (i.e Please Read the Manual), something which says the exact same thing, but without the insult or profanity.

ooh get her!

OK
read the flipping manual

and
Read The Friendly Manual
Read The Fine Manual
Read The Fantastic Manual
etc.

what it stands for is irrelevant; we all understand what it means

exactly,
I think the little ;) gave the clue of how I meant it in a light hearted manner.
