Is there some special reason that you need a graphical interface? I am not sure why you are talking about CGI and Apache those seem totally unrelated to what you are trying to do. If you need a GUI program in Perl you can install the Tk widget like so: "perl -MCPAN -e shell" then at the prompt type: install Tk - on a Windows system (I assume you are using ActiveState go Perl\bin and type PPM - when the prompt comes up type: install Tk

Once the module is installed you can start out by creating simple widget like programs and progress up to what you are trying to do. Time to get up to speed depends on how much Perl you know and how much programming chops you have.

Here is a sample of Hello World! in Tk:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use Tk; my $mw = MainWindow->new; $mw->Button(-text => "Hello World!", -command =>sub{exit})->pack; MainLoop;
Perl does much more than web stuff
Happy Coding!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
