this is the code by Sinan Ünür

for more information see this Example

use strict; use warnings;
use CGI::Simple;
use DBI;

my $cgi = CGI::Simple->new;
my $dsn = sprintf(
    'DBI:mysql:database=%s;host=%s',
    'cdcol', 'localhost'
);

my $dbh = DBI->connect($dsn, root => '',
    { AutoCommit => 0, RaiseError => 0 }
);

my $status = $dbh ? 'Connected' : 'Failed to connect';

print $cgi->header, <<HTML;
<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head><title>Test</title></head>
<body>
<h1>Perl CGI Script</h1>
<p>$status</p>
</body>
</html>
HTML

this code gives me error:
