    Perl as a scripting language in ASP


    I am a newbie to ASP but have experience writing Perl CGI's. I would like
    to use Perl as the scripting language in ASP but am having trouble finding
    information on how to do so.

    Can anyone help me with the setup on using Perl as a scripting language?

    Do I need to download and install a special Perl scripting engine or does
    actual "Perl" installed on the system suffice.

    Can anyone help me with sample scripts utilizing Perl as a scripting language.

    I would greatly appreciate any and all help. Thanks in advance!

    According to the MSDN library:

    "You can set your scripting language to any scripting engine that has been
    installed in IIS."
    ...
    "IIS ships with two script engines, VBScript and JScript."

    I couldn't find instructons on how to install a scripting engine in IIS but
    I guess that is what you need to do.

    There's third party scripting engine ActivePerl, http://www.activestate.com/
    They should have directions on how to install it. I don't think there's much
    to do, your files with pl extensions will be parsed using Perl engine
