I've been trying to get this two line perl script going, it's only suppose to say hello.
maybe if someone could lead me throught the setting the scripts up I would be alright.

im also new at perl, but i may be able to help.
this is what you should do:
#!location of your perl
print "hello world.";
if you are doing it for the web, do this
#!location of perl
print "Hello World.";

If you're an absolute, total beginner, get the book "Perl and CGI for the World Wide Web" by Elizabeth Castro. You can get it at Amazon.com and all the usual places.
It assumes you know nothing about Perl, CGI or Unix, just a bit of HTML. It cheap too, and money well spent as it explains all the very basic things that even other beginners' books leave out because they assume they're obvious.
