Spot on.

<tip type="Activestate Perl" author="John Handelaar">
Perl on Win32 allows you to have a script called by
either perl.exe or the ISAPI plugin PerlIS.dll.
One of them prepends HTTP headers in front of
_everything_, the other doesn't.  You can differentiate
between the two types of output by assigning different
file type extensions to each method.
