How do I use perl and where do I place scripts?





toughtrio
I've just recently started to get interested in the language perl and I was checking if FriHost supports it.
It seems that there IS a directory cgi-bin which many perl hosts also have, but I don't know where to begin. Like when I put this code inside the cgi-bin directory or the public_html wherever, it doesn't seem to work.

Code:
#!/usr/local/bin/perl -w

 print("Hello World,\n");
 print("I'm  alive\n");


I saved it as tester.cgi in the cgi-bin directory. Still doesn't work Crying or Very sad

Can anyone please guide me.

Warm Regards,
toughtrio
