in reply to Non-CGI perl scripts on a web server?

Feel free to disregard if you've already considered this, but what you're doing here seems potentially really dangerous - even if the script itself is innocuous, it could be used to DOS your system.

Make sure that your web site is behind some kind of authentication, and that your script isn't able to be subverted to do damage to the system. If you're taking any kind of user input, it needs to be carefully sanitized. Etc, etc.
