file and type the following:

   perl Makefile.PL
   make
   make test
   make install

WHAT SYSTEMS DOES IT WORK WITH?

This module works with Linux, Windows, OSX, FreeBSD, VMS and other platforms.

WHERE IS THE DOCUMENTATION?

Documentation is found in POD (plain old documentation) form in CGI.pm
itself.  When you install CGI, manaul pages will automatically be installed.
on Unix systems, type "man CGI" or "perldoc CGI").

WHERE ARE THE EXAMPLES?

A collection of examples demonstrating various CGI features and techniques are
in the directory "examples". These are now rather old examples of Perl code and
should not be considered as best practices.
