Actually, you can get a 500 error from a number of things:
* syntax error in the script
* bad header (usually caused by a run-time error occurring before the script
produces the "Content-type" header)
* bad path in the shebang ("#!/usr/bin/perl")
Permissions on the script file sometimes cause a 500, and sometimes
(depending on the server and its configuration) cause an "access denied".

It is necessary for the welfare of society that genius should be privileged
to utter sedition, to blaspheme, to outrage good taste, to corrupt the
youthful mind, and generally to scandalize one's uncles. -- George Bernard
