Yikes! Don't do that. Please. There's been a discussion earlier about this
Because cgi-bin is "open to the outside world", multiple requests like
http://mydomain.com/cgi-bin/rebol could bring the server down. And now
the ISPs would *really* be rolling their eyes. You could more safely place
it someplace like /home/mydomain/bin.
I belong to a professional organization that is mostly sysadmins for ISPs
and telcos and they are uniformly opposed to this. One of the local ISPs
the I know of - that doesn't belong - *does* allow this and they are
gonna be sorry!
