Yes, indeed.
The interpretor is to use only on Win box, since on Unix you can use
the '!#' convetnion.

Leave it blank.

You need to create the "pl" extension, set the interpreter field, and
leave the command blank. Upon indexation, the command will default to
the full path of your script. 

If you want to create on single CgiResource for a given perl script,
then you need to feel both "interpreter" and "command" (although, the
default command value may feet your needs).
