What is application/x-perl?

Hi everyone,

I have runned in to a problem. I dont know when or why it occure but suddenly content-type:application/x-perl prints out on my page.
Does anyone know what this application means and what program(s) uses it?

Thank you for any response...


RE: What is application/x-perl?

It is part of the CGI specification, it is the content-type directive that is sent to your web browser.  You may have too many headers printing or something.  This is supposed to be the first line of the HTML file, followed by a blank line, so you probably are printing it twice somewhere.


As always, I hope that helped!

Beware: Studies have shown that research causes cancer in lab rats.
