i'm gonna guess this is a compiled executable. ie, written in C/C++
Something of that sort. Every perl file needs its first line to be
or wherever the perl interpretter is. So this binary exectuable does not
have that as its first line, which is fine b/c it cannt be run by prl anyway.
okay, i havn't set up apache in about 7 months, so this is very fuzzy, But
i believe that in the apache.conf or httpd.conf or something to that effect
there is options of what cgi's can/will be able to be run. For example you
can set apache up to only run cgi's with the suffix being .cgi. Anywho, i
think you may want to play with this and see what trouble you can gt
yourself into b/c i think it is just a configuration issue with apache..
