<tip>If you are having trouble with a CGI script you just uploaded, where 
it seems you've checked all the usual "stuff" that can go wrong... 
permissions, paths, and so forth, don't forget to check that you've not 
uploaded the script in binary mode by accident.  You have to upload the 
file in text format.</tip>

(CoffeeCup Free FTP pulled a little trick on me and uploaded ONE file in 
binary format, the rest the correct way.  I was pulling my hair out)
