Subject: Help out Apache when installing Strawberry (maybe option?)
<mkanat> CSJewell: It might also be nice for the installer to set HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.cgi\Shell\ExecCGI\Command to C:\strawberry\perl\bin\perl.exe if it's not already set. <mkanat> CSJewell: That's how Apache runs mod_cgi scripts on Windows. <mkanat> (If they don't have the right hashbang line.) <mkanat> (At least, if you set ScriptInterpreterSource registry-strict.) <mkanat> Maybe with a %* at the end.
Adding link to Bugzilla's bug tracker for the reason for this (as well as a few other things).

Okay, yeah, so it looks like the %* isn't necessary. One problem for Bugzilla is that we have to put a -T switch on the line, since our scripts run in taint mode. Apache actually fails if the - T isn't specified. -t also works, but if you always specified that for every application, they might full up the Apache error log and start to run really slowly (because Apache will throttle log writes).
