In the early days of HTTP servers, before Netscape and Apache, A decision was made to segregate programs (CGI) and content (HTML). This is why all modern Web Servers still require definition of cgi-bin directories. That's the key. All you have to do is define your home-root directory as cgi-bin. Then when you have a URL such as: It will work. It is a definition within the Web Server. Any good Web admin can make it happen. Additionally, you will probably have to do the " #!rebol -cgi " as the first line of the script. And, depending on your provider, you may need to have the Rebol distribution in your home directory. You also don't really need the ".r" suffix. Just give the script the name you want. It will work. Greg Piney Standard & Poor's Web Engineering
