Thank you for getting back to me.
I may understand a percentage of what you are saying. But I don't think I
If you are saying I need a file name, I tried c: [etc.] instead of http:. It
didn't help. I also tried relative addressing.
The other thing you might be saying is that I need to add an alias to
apache. Something like: ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "C:/.......etc. There is
already one of those in there:
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "C:/Apache/cgi-bin/"
Thus I tried: system('/cgi-bin/x.pl ');
It didn't work.
If you are not saying either of those, then I don't get any of your message.
