Perl & Windows 2000

Hi All,

How do I determine the path to Perl on a Windows 2000 server? My hosting
company has installed ActiveState Perl (latest version).

I've called them and they said the path to perl is E:\Perl, however when I
enter this into my .cgi file, it spits an error back at me.

Any ideas?

Then you know that they didn't put perl.exe in the root. :)

What you actually need to know is the path to the Perl compiler. For
instance you could try:

E:/Perl/bin/perl

(No reason to bother about Window's backslashes in Perl programs.)

Or else you'd better call them again.
