Create the following file and call it hello.cgi
print CGI->headers(), "Hello";
put it in the same directory as perltest.cgi and cgi.cgi, so that if you "go to
xammp explore and get into the cgi box" there are now three files: perltest.cgi,
cgi.cgi and hello.cgi.
Then go to: http://localhost/cgi-bin/hello.cgi
