What's required? PERL Weather is written in PERL (Practical Export and Reporting Language), the defacto standard for the CGI interface. Although PERL Weather was developed on a LINUX box, it should work on an NT machine as well.
PERL Weather requirments:
1) CGI-BIN directory access - The script needs to be uplaoded to your server and run from your CGI-BIN directory
2) TELNET Access - To set permissions on the files and directories.
3) About a half hour to set up - that's it!

How complicated is PERL Weather to install? Every effort has been made to make the installation and configuration of this script as easy as possible. The installation instructions will walk even the greenest net nubie through the process. The script is heavily commented, and comes with detailed, step-by-step installation and configuration instructions. View the On-line Installation Instructions

What if I run into problems? Answers to most problems can found in the FAQ and Message Board areas.

What does PERL Weather cost? PERL Weathter is released as Freeware. This is the first "real" PERL program I've written. It's been a great learning experience. If you have any suggestions for improvments please let me know! Email Us
