      Now I have got this error message in the last 3 attempts:

       Server error!

The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your

Error message:
Premature end of script headers: hello88.cgi

If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.
Error 500

Apache/2.2.9 (Win32) DAV/2 mod_ssl/2.2.9 OpenSSL/0.9.8h mod_autoindex_color


I tried these 3 versions: 

#!"C:\xampp\perl\bin\perl.exe" -w

use CGI;

print  "Hello World!";


and varying the last line with CGI-> header or CGI->headers or whatever it
was that was suggested. 

Try changing this line:
print CGI->headers(), "Hello";


print CGI->header(), "Hello";

(ie drop the 's' off the word 'headers').

That was it. 
All three attempts made the error message above.
