 asp-perl file.asp key1 value1 key2 value2

would be similar to calling the file.asp in a web environment like


The asp.conf script will be read from the current directory for parameters that would be set with PerlSetVar normally under mod_perl. For more information on how to configure the asp.conf file, please see < >
