Bob, if you have telnet access to the webserver [sounds like you do],
perhaps you can try telnetting to the webserver instance on port 80,
then issuing a 

GET /path-to-perlfect/search.pl?q=search-keyword

This should give a little more information.

Permissions at 777.
Cannot get access to server log. (See my previous mailing)
All files uploaded in ASCII mode.
4 other Pearl scripts working OK.
Thanks for your interest.
