I am trying to learn CGI programming in PERL. I have a simple test page that I want to try out, but when I upload it and try to display it as a web page, all I get is the source code. Can anyone help me out? I'm not sure what file extension to use (.cgi, .pl, or html), or if it should have a #! line to point it to the perl executable. I'm a true beginner, so I'd really appreciate any help.
