I am trying to run a cgi on the command line
(offline mode: enter name=value pairs on standard input)
then returns to the next line and does nothing.I can't exit or do anything from there onwards.
What does this mean and how do I get the cgi to run.

This is CGI.pm requesting that you enter in any variables your script needs. If there aren't any, just enter in an end-of-file character. If you're on unix, pressing ctrl-D will do it, on windows use ctrl-Z on a newline and press enter.
If there are some, enter them as name=value pairs, one per line, and follow that with an eof as above.
