I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

R U talking about perl?
And what system are you currently using, or will be using to edit your cgi programs/scripts?
Personally I would prefer gnu-emacs and gnu-c, but I have no idea what programming language you prefer, or what system you are working on...
Exploring SharePoint 2016

Explore SharePoint 2016, the web-based, collaborative platform that integrates with Microsoft Office to provide intranets, secure document management, and collaboration so you can develop your online and offline capabilities.

Isn't this an ambigous question ??

If you want to edit a CGI you can do it by using any text editor available in all the systems you might work on.

If you are talking about compiling a cgi that is probably written in C, well you need a C compiler and that depends on the platform you are working on...

If your CGI is a perl script, again, you only need any text editor.

Give us more information about your system and your personal skills, and we'll be able to be a little more helpful.
Personally I use Windows 95, and I'll edit any text based scripts, and c programs using an editor which has color codeing, that way I can easily pick out if I'm missing an " or tag bracket, or even a close braces, it's good to have one which at least does auto-indenting.
If you don't want to invest anything at all then I don't know any really good ones, Personally I would invest a few dollars, and get something like Zeus Lite ($35), or something like that...
