Perl from Unix to Win98

Perl from Unix to Win98

Perl from Unix to Win98


I have a script that works perfect on unix. I want to make some changes and I want to do in Win98 using active perl. I tried to run the script but I get nothing except

content type text/html when I type perl myscript.pl. As far as the browser goes, nothing comes up on the screen.

Can you help

RE: Perl from Unix to Win98

Might help a bit to see the script or know what its supposed to print. "content type text/html" is the usual start of web page, which'd mean the script hasn't any typos or missing modules but whatever its supposed to do next doesn't return output. The browser (look at the source view) is correct for this output.

Next step is to stick a bunch of prints in there and see where you're failing.
if you do:
my $debug = 10;
and then

print "Just did foo\n" if $debug > 5;
print "attempting bar: val1: $val1, val2: $val2\n" if $debug > 7;

sort of debugging statements, you can leave them in as you get it to work and choose your level of debugging info to see for any particular run.

Good luck.
