An HTML script can be run with no server. If I click the OK button in 
the HTML script, I want to run a perl program. Can this be done without 

The following haven't worked.

1. <FORM action="./xxx.pl" method="post">
Displays xxx.pl rather than run it.

2. <FORM action="../../../Perl/bin/perl.exe xxx.pl" method="post">
I get a message saying the file can't be found.

3. I have changed file associations such that perl runs any file with 
and extension of .pl. (This is in XP.)

4. I have tried variations of these with links instead of the OK button.
