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...

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...

ps. There are a load of really really bad text editors out there.
