server where I will be porsting them when they go live.  I've checked the
obvious things-- it has the proper #!/usr/bin/perl-w header, it addresses
only files in the same folder, so should not have any path delimiter issues.
The newlines have all been striped of CRs.

to prime STDIN and the ENV{'CONTENT_LENGTH'} so that my app behaves as it
would were the input to be submitted by a POST request?
