in reply to OT: Apache/perl question

Any directories past the script name will be available in $ENV{PATH_INFO} or $query->path_info if using CGI. That's where you'll find your /anotherdirectory.

90% of every Perl application is already written.

    Thanks dragonchild.

    I've got it working, thanks to that. If the directory it's in is identified to Apache with the ScriptAlias directive, any file no matter what the extension can run.

    So if you have a script called 'directory' in a ScriptAlias folder foo and you go to the URL the script will run and you get /bar/baz in $ENV{PATH_INFO}

    Nobody says perl looks like line-noise any more
    kids today don't know what line-noise IS ...
