Directory browsing with cgi

I´m looking for a script to run on a NT server that can automatically display the contents of specified directories on a site - the same as on which it´s running. I´d also like the script to have an option to set a wildcard mask for filetypes, so that not all files are shown to the user browsing it. And of course, when a filename is clicked, the script should send the file.
So, a script that works like directorybrowsing, just looking better, with the filteroption, and that can be executed on a NT server.
Thanks in advance

yes.  PERL is the scripting language you would use.
You can read the contents of any directory and filter out what you dont want. For example print all the .html files as links.

However for security reasons you wouldnt want your cgi scripts in the same dir as your html.

If you need the script written for you email me at webmaster@umeda.com with the specs.
