non-working perl script under Windows 2008

I'm doing a test Perl script under Windows 2008

Here is the HTML page that calls it; a simple submit button

<html>

<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type"
content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<title>Untitled </title>
</head>

<body>
<form action="cgi-bin/lambdaperl.cgi" method="POST">
</form>

<form method="POST">
<p><input type="submit" name="B1" value="Submit"></p>
</form>
</body>
</html>

Here is the file lambdaperl.cgi

#!/usr/bin/perl

print "HTTP/1.0 200 OK\n";
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
print <<HTML;
<html>
<head>
<title>A Simple Perl CGI</title>
</head>
<body>
<h1>A Simple Perl CGI</h1>
<p>Hello World</p>
</body>
<//html>
HTML

exit;

I get

405 - HTTP verb used to access this page is not allowed.
The page you are looking for cannot be displayed because an invalid method (HTTP verb) was used to attempt access.

The input-submit buttion has to be inside this form.
</form>

<form method="POST">

This is now a new formular with no action specified what to do when
something is submitted.
<p><input type="submit" name="B1" value="Submit"></p>
</form>
</body>

This is not a Perl error message.

Beside what others have told you: these two lines aren't
anything your script is supposed to write out, they are
send by the web server all on it's own before it passes
what your script did output on to the client.

Actually, no. Your script does need to send them. The web server isn't
going to assume it knows what type of content/response you want to send
back to the browser.

The second line and blank after are needed, the first line is only needed
for IIS and non-parsed header (NPH) scripts.

The second line and blank after are needed, the first line is only needed
for IIS and non-parsed header (NPH) scripts.

For normal CGI scripts you should replace the first line with a Status
header:

print "Status: 200\n";

However, since 200 is the default, you can omit it (and most people do).
