My script creates an image. No output there...
So yeh, you can run it from putty (I hate that program...).
The samples output was meant for this use:
<IMG SRC="/cgi-bin/script.pl">
And the sample script sends the header (of GIF which is outdated. GD 
doesn't create GIFs anymore) and the image.
You can just print it to a file (without the headers) and do whatever 
you want with it.

Yes you do. Or at least, so it seems.
Honestly, I have no idea why it's not written.
I think it's time for you to update your Perl anyway :)
