Question Help can't get Apache2 with mod_perl to work

I am trying to install apache2 with mod-perl. The installation went well but when I try to run a simple perl test. I get an internal failure statement from the browser.
I installed mod-perl when I installed Ubuntu so I am sure that it is properly configured...I hope.

test file
print "hello world"

I have added .pl to the AddHandler CGI in apache2.conf file.
I have tried adding
</File "~\.pl">
as well to no avail.

Anyone have experience with this problem?

I appreciate any help in this matter.

Because, I have done run out of idea's.

there is no header info in your script regarding the contents. if you want to use (this may help as it takes care of CGI aspects)get it from

use CGI qw/:standard/;
use CGI::Carp 'fatalsToBrowser';
print header,start_html;
