Setting up a practice session

To use Python as a CGI environment, first you need to set up your system. Fortunately, everything you need is supplied with Python. Here's the steps to practice on your Windows machine...

Example CGI programs

Note these programs are not currently operational on this server - they are simply source code. Copy them to your own cgi-bin directory and run under your own server to test.
