The Common Gateway Interface (CGI) is a simple interface for running 
external programs, software or gateways under an information server in a 
platform-independent manner. Currently, the supported information servers 
are HTTP servers.                  
The interface has been in use by the World-Wide Web since 1993. This 
specification defines the interface known as `CGI/1.1', and its use on the 
Unix(R) and AmigaDOS(tm) systems.

Internet-Drafts are also available by mail.
Send a message to:  mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-robinson-www-interface-00.txt".

NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in
      MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
      feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
      command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
      a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
      exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
      "multipart" MIME messages (i.e., documents which have been split
      up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
      how to manipulate these messages.

For questions, please mail to Internet-Drafts@cnri.reston.va.us.

Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader 
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version
of the Internet-Draft.
