This executable accepts a number of optional arguments. To find out what they are (without starting the server), use the -h argument:
panic% /home/httpd/httpd_perl/bin/httpd_perl -h
The most interesting arguments will be covered in the following sections. Any other arguments will be introduced as needed.
