8.2.4. Setting MIME Types with Perl

In Perl, the following line of code is used to set the MIME type of a document:

print "Content-type: mimeType\n\n";

The above Perl code adds the Content-type HTTP header to the HTTP response. There are two newline characters at the end since a blank line is used to mark the end of the HTTP header.

The following example demonstrates how to set the MIME type of a document to "application/vnd.wap.xhtml+xml" using Perl:

print "Content-type: application/vnd.wap.xhtml+xml\n\n";
print "<?xml version=\"1.0\"?>\n";
print "<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC \"-//WAPFORUM//DTD XHTML Mobile 1.0//EN\" \"http://www.wapforum.org/DTD/xhtml-mobile10.dtd\">\n";
