What is wrong

I am having the standard problem of just getting the premature end of headers error message which explains nothing.

I have cut down a script as far as this

#!/usr/bin/perl -w
print "<html> Hello </html>"

It still gives the same error. I think permissions are OK and the script runs on the command line.

Can anyone tell me how to get decent error messages out of the system or what the problem is likely to be and how to fix it.

There's always the server error logs --

You need to let the browser know what's coming first.

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
