Topic: PDF from perl/cgi over web

I'm trying to create PDF output from a Perl script and serve it over the web. However, the browser is unable to display the file, giving "Internal Server Error".
The PDF file is in ASCII format and it displays correctly when I redirect the script output to a file and try to view the file over the web. i.e.
1) test.pl > /my/http/document/root/foo.pdf
works but http://mywebserver/cgi-bin/test.pl will not work.
I suspect the problem could be that the server sends the correct Content-type: when I access the pdf file but not when I access the perl file.
Could anyone please let me know what needs to be done to make the perl script work correctly?
Thanks in advance.
