Hi!
I am currently a beginner at CGI, and sometimes when I run into CGI's, I'm interested in how they are coded, so I can learn.  I was wondering if there is any way to view the coding behind CGI's, just like in I.E. and Netscape, you can hit VIEW--->View source, to see the HTML coding.  Thank-you very much!

P.S.  Please do not submit 'No, this can't be done', as an answer... Thank-you!

So, as a comment, no, this can't be done.

Ah... OK... oh well.  I guess I'd better just give it up then!

Don't give up - there are some great perl scripts for cgi that are freely available and well worth a look.  You can even write them as shell scripts althjough this tends to be somewhat limiting.  I have written really simple cgis as shell scripts.
