[ quoted from http://www.umr.edu/~cgiwrap/intro.html ]

> CGIWrap is a gateway program that allows general users to use CGI scripts
> and HTML forms without compromising the security of the http server.
> Scripts are run with the permissions of the user who owns the script. In
> addition, several security checks are performed on the script, which will not
> be executed if any checks fail. 
> 
> CGIWrap is used via a URL in an HTML document. As distributed, cgiwrap
> is configured to run user scripts which are located in the
> ~/public_html/cgi-bin/ directory.
