You can run (most) cgi applications from command line. My majorcool
installd a file called majordomo and that is what I call to use it.
(ie. www.blah.com/cgi-bin/majordomo) I'll have to see tomorrow where
the majorcool.cgi your talking about is.

Try these commands to help troubleshoot. I don't know the first thing
about majorcool. I did not even know it was valid to try to execute a
cgi script from the command line, but it sounds like you have a basic
perl or .cgi issue.
grep "#!" majorcool.cgi
Does this line say "#!/bin/perl"? If not, there's your problem.
What version number comes back, if any?
