Ok, I'm sure this is ridiculously easy, but I'm not a perl programmer.
This job is simple: Show me how to do two things:
1. Include a (non executable) file such as "/includes/ad.inc" in the output of a perl file such as "/cgi-bin/mypage.cgi".
2. Include variable values from a shared config file such as "/cgi-bin/sitesettings.config" in the output of a perl file such as "/cgi-bin/mypage.cgi".
I'm thinking that the config file will have a format such as:
SiteName=[url removed, login to view];
But if there is a better way to do it in perl, I'm open to it.
