I neglected to post my email address when I posed the question below.

My address is:

Subject: Perl & CGI

My ISP (Deamscape) suggested I contact the local Linux Support Group.

I hope my request is not out of place here.

I am trying to learn Perl/cgi.

I have completed the "Hellow, World!" tutorial except for getting my file
which is now a .cgi file to run on my Browser.

I cannot figure out the path to put in the location box in my browser to run
my cgi script.

Below is the latest email that my ISP (Dreamscape) will NOT answer.

Hello customerservice,

I would like to know the path to type into the location box
in the Web Browser to test cgi script that I have saved in the
shell account:

I have tried:

And also without using "www"

The cgi file runs on the command line during my Telnet

I have changed the permissions: chmod755

I have verified the permissions: ls -l hello.cgi
result: -rwxr-xr-x

I would be very grateful if someone could help me overcome this hurdle.

If this subject is inappropriate here I apologize and perhaps someone could
point me in the right direction.

Moses Moses
