To julio, regarding the (deleted) message "REMOTE_USER"

'*\!*@@!

I found out by myself a couple of minutes ago:

just because I wrote "\n" (or "\r\n") instead of "\n\n" after the "Content-type: ", I got the server error! :-(((((

It works now :-)
As both you and ozo had the correct idea, I thought I'll give each one of your 4*30 points (splitting the 60), so please do answer this question.

 Ok, thanks Christian,
here is a (hope) working code to exec a cgi as SSI:

--//--
#!/usr/bin/perl

print "Content-Type: text/plain\n\n";

print "Remote User: $ENV{'REMOTE_USER'}\n";

exit;
--//--

Cheers, julio
