Question viewing perl scripts with webbrowsers.

I am a linux newbie, and have mandrake installed on my system. I was wondering how I could view perl scripts using a web browser. I have been able to view them using the command perl program from the command line, but I want to start writing scripts that utilize html, but I need to know how to view them in my browser first.

It is probably a simple solution, but I haven't been able to figure it out yet. Perhaps someone could help me with this problem.

Welcome to LQ.

You will need to run a webserver - eg apache then place your scripts in your cgi-bin directory and run them from there.

Thanks for the help. I have been able to set up apache on my system and can now view my own pages on the computer.
