diggernz has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I am creating a frontend to a Database running on a Windows Platfrom (XP) on the same machine. In order to use Perl do i have install apache and the related modules to run CGI programs? The system is not required to be web capable. Is there other options for creating interfaces with Perl rather than using an internet browser? Any advise or suggestions would be great. Thanks
