  1. You need to have a webserver installed, such as e.g. Apache for windows or Xitami or MS Personal Webserver (is on your Win98 CD) or MS IIS,
  2. You need to have Perl installed, best for Windows is Active State's Active Perl,
  3. You must assign all files with endings *.pl and *.cgi to be passed to perl in the server config (see the docs)
  4. You need a webbrowser to call the server at your localhost with the URL of your script
  5. alternatively when using for example Ultraedit you can create a shortcut in the extras_menu with tools_configuration to execute the scripts by passing them to the shell and returning the output from the script in a Ultraedit Window, but read the docs for Ultraedit before, to make it corecctly
