Well, technically, you'll have to do a bit more than that. First off, the
#! line will not be recognized by Windows. Thus, you'll need to
associate the .pl extension *in Windows Explorer* with whatever perl
interpreter you have (I'd guess "C:\cygwin\bin\perl.exe"). Secondly,
you might be missing the login environment, so you might wish to create a
perl.bat file that does a "c:\cygwin\bin\bash --login /usr/bin/perl %1 %2
%3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9" and use that instead (beware of directory changes).
Alternatively, if you want to use the #! line, you could associate .pl
files with "c:\cygwin\bin\bash -c"... In the end, it might be less
trouble to just run Cygwin apache.
 You missed the "!" in your examples... ;-)
 /usr/bin is a mount, and thus is not visible to non-Cygwin programs.
C:\cygwin\usr\bin should be empty.
