Redirecting HTML page

I have a perl script that generates HTML pages (CGI App). The application runs fine for IIS but doesn't on a machine running Apache. The script does the following :
1) write Content-type header... \n
2) writes a couple of set-cookie headers...\n after each
3) write Location header followed by 2 new-lines
4) exit out of program

Again, it works fine on a server running IIS but not on a Linux server running Apache. Any ideas why? I'd appreciate any feedback you could give. I never had this problem before but I've never needed to redirect to another page before in either app either. Thanks.

I think you should provide more details about which part doesn't work. What do you see on the screen, in the logs, etc.
I agree. Here's the link:
