now lets move along and make sure that it will execute on it's own,
not as the 'input text file' to perl but as

	#./check2.cgi

this will mean that the file is at least executable by you. I
prefer to put them up as chmod 755 - this way they can be
owned by nobody:daemon - and I can still run them as a
member of another group....

[jeeves:~/perl/CGI-Beg] drieux% ls -l sill*
-rwxr-xr-x  1 drieux  house  252 Apr 26 09:32 sillyRedirect.cgi
[jeeves:~/perl/CGI-Beg] drieux%

Then we evolve into the second round of the questions - namely
the differences between your 'local development webserver' and
the 'webserver' on the 'web host'.

what worries me here is that your 'development environment' is
allowing 'text' to be 'run' - rather than requiring that it be
an executable file.....

[jeeves:~/perl/CGI-Beg] drieux% ls -l fork*
-rw-r--r--  1 drieux  house  736 Apr 26 09:53 forkProblem.pl
[jeeves:~/perl/CGI-Beg] drieux%

that code will work with the

	perl forkProblem.pl

but not with

	./forkProblem.pl

Hence if your development system is 'rigged' to do some sort
of 'read the file extension' and pass the text to the appropriate
interpreter - then it is masking the permission problem....

The next problem of course is that yourJackBootedFascistWebAdmin
has disabled 'cgi' from 'user accounts' - and hence will require
that you install it in the canononical cgi-bin....

but first things first.
