Presumably, you are talking more about the "die" statement's 
output.  Yes, the "yipes!" output would NOT make a browser very 

Bruce is right.  At the very beginning of your script, you probably 
ought to start with:

  print <<END;
Content: text/plain

<title>Diagnostic output from $0</title>

...and then close with

print <<END;

Really, trying to do all of this in the blind has got to be molto 
frustrating.  Doesn't verio offer you any pre-debugged CGI scripts 
that you could crib from?
