The way you phrased your question it doesn't make any sense.
You start a Perl script interactively bey entering its name on the command
line or maybe by clicking on the icon in a GUI or programatically from
another application, etc.
HTML forms do not start any program and neither does IE (well, except for
ActiveX Controls). What they do is submit an HTTP request to a web server
and wait for response.
Just think about it: someone could write a simple HTML document, that would
be able to launch any program like e.g. "format" or "rm". Would you want to
use a browser that allows that?
As for the Apache Web server: you don't need Apache to run Perl applications
or to run IE or to view HTML forms. For submitting HTML forms you need to
connect to some web server somewhere, but that has nothing to do with Perl.
Therefore the way you combined those four components in your question (Perl,
HTML forms, IE, Apache) doesn't make sense because they have nothing to do
with each other.
I am sensing an X-Y problem here. You want to solve problem X, believe that
Y is the best way to do it, and therefore you are asking about how to do Y.
What is th original X that you are trying to solve? Chances are it is much
easier to solve that problem than the riddle of your question Y above.
