Summary: CGIHTTPServer (PR#239)

Details: Jitterbug-Id: 239
Submitted-By: Michael_Frericks@informatik-kooperation.de
Date: Fri, 17 Mar 2000 11:27:23 -0500 (EST)
Version: 1.5.2
OS: WinNT 4.0

The module CGIHTTPServer does not run on WinNT since 

a) the function executable() seems to return a false value, if you omit the call
of executable() you come to
b) the function nobody_uid() imports the module pwd available only for unix
c) other unix-functions as fork... are used to create a process with the user

This is fixed. The module now works on Unix, Windows, and (I hope) Macintosh.

Warning: this module is not secure -- don't use it unless you are inside a firewall!
