Help with html/cgi file editor!!! please

Help with html/cgi file editor!!! please


I have a simple program that uses perl and file read/write abilities using an html form textarea to make it a basic notepad to edit html files in.

One problem though, anytime I edit a .cgi file, the program will no longer work.  It matters not if I change anything or not, so I am not adding a error to the program, but I think it somehow changes owner on me??
  If I go back into telnet open the file, close the file it works fine, it also does not change the 0755 permission on the file

Any help is appreciated
