Perl script is executed and virtual return is blank

Problem:

We need to execute a Perl script from inside a PHP page and display the results as part of the page. We tried the 'virtual' command but the server returns: blank.

Solution:

With our setup, this will not work you will need to call the Perl function instead of running Perl in the php page, this is clearly for security purposes.
