    Can I use Perl with Flex?


      I would like to run several Perl scripts from Flex. Following the only example I found online, I have the files/code listed below. The problem is, when I test locally, I get nothing as the message. When I upload to my server, I also get nothing as the message. Perl seems to be installed properly on the server. Other scripts in the directory run fine. Also, the Perl script below runs fine when I run it through command line. So... I'm very confused as to if this can even be done.





      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
      <mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml" layout="absolute">
               private function onResult():void
                   txt.htmlText = txt.htmlText + "<br/>Msg1: " + xmlService.lastResult.messages["msg1"];
                   txt.htmlText = txt.htmlText + "<br/>Msg2: " + xmlService.lastResult.messages["msg2"];
           <mx:HTTPService id="xmlService" result="onResult();" resultFormat="e4x" url="test_IO.pl" />
           <mx:Panel width="350" height="280" layout="absolute" horizontalCenter="0" verticalCenter="0" color="#000000" fontSize="12" fontFamily="Verdana">
               <mx:Button x="126.5" y="10" label="Test Me" click="xmlService.send();"/>
               <mx:TextArea x="10" y="42" width="310" height="188" id="txt" verticalScrollPolicy="on"/>








      use strict;


      use XML::Writer;


      print "Content-type: text/xml\n\n";


      my $xml = new XML::Writer();






          $xml->dataElement(msg1=> "Hello World");


          $xml->dataElement(msg2=> "Goodbye World");
