Perl Without -w Switch

I'm new to linux and just installed Fedora Core 1 on a non-production server and installed all of the latest patches/os updates. In running various tests with setting up websites, running scripts, etc. I noticed, when running CGI or PL scripts, that if I don't use the "-w" (warning) switch in my perl path I get an script mis-configuration error-500 and the script will not run. When I enable the -w switch everything works great.

Is there a setting that I can change that would allow me to run CGI and PL scripts without the -w switch in my PERL scripts?

I've solved this problem on my own...
It's the security setting of the built-in vs-ftp.
go to /etc/vsftpd

edit vsftpd.conf

unmask the ASCII upload settings to enable the REAL ASCII upload, that's why I couldn't execute CGI/PL scripts since it's a FAKE ascii upload.

This solution can be applied to RedHat 8, 9 and Fedora Core 1
