[Melbourne-pm] interesting apache outcome

       Though what is interesting is that if I go to the xammp explore and
get into the cgi box there are two files: pearltest.cgi and cgi.cgi.

      If I put into the browser: http://localhost/cgi-bin/perltest.cgi

      then I get:

      GCI with MiniPerl
CGI with MiniPerl is ready ...

      and if I put the cgi.cgi in instead of pearltest.cgi and the rest the
same I get: 


  So I don't know. I have sort of got what I wanted in terms of getting the
browser to use a cgi file to get a desired [I assume] outcome. It's just
that when I make my own .pl files and put all the shebang stuff etc in the
VTC tute, and then change it to a .cgi title and move into this same cgi
file as used above, that I still a 404 error.
