CGIs may be referenced using URLs of the form:
For debugging output, try running your script as:
If you need access to the REMOTE_ADDR variable (some scripts depend on this),
invoke your script as:
The REMOTE_ADDR environment variable is not preserved when cgi.public is used in the URL due to DNS and mod_rewriting rules.
Access to the error_log file is not generally available
unless permission has been granted by the Solution Center.
When writing html to reference your scripts, we recommend you write
your cgi URLs of the form "http://cgi.public.iastate.edu/..." rather than
"http://www.public.iastate.edu/..." This will make things easier.
Scripts may be written in any language which support exists for on
standard Project Vincent Alphastations (Perl, C, csh, sh, etc).
