There are two ways of setting CGI scripts:

a) On a per-script basis: you can manually register your script by
   creating an appropriate CGIResource. On Windows, use the
   interpreter attribute, on UNIX, use the '#!' trick.

b) On a per extension basis: if all your scripts are perl scripts, for
   example, then you can register the pl extension. Set the
   interpreter (on Windows only) to the full path of perl (on unix,
   use the '#!' trick).

With a) you can custmoize the default command line (the command
attribute, one command line item per line in the text field, with b),
you will use the default command attribute value (which defaults to
the full path of the exported script).
