What do you mean by "execute"? Just call it? Or do you wish to write
your own non-parsed headers CGI program? The latter is not too difficult.

Sample script:

@echo off
echo HTTP/1.0 200 Document follows
echo Server: Lotus-Domino
echo Content-Type: text/html
echo.
REM note the dot above!
echo This page was generated by a NPH-script

save this file as nph-test.cmd
The "nph-" part is important - it tells the server not send
any HTTP headers, because the CGI will take care
of that.

Copy this script in your Domino/cgi-bin directory, call
it from the browser with http://<yourserver>/cgi-bin/nph-test.cmd

The convention that scripts/executables starting with "nph-"
provide their own HTTP headers is standard, not something
restricted to Apache or Unix.

Hope this helps.
