Please explain me the way to orginize
cgi for web-pages, that have login/password options.
the prolem, That i have encounter is following:
after login/password is entered, cgi should check it and if password is ok, change html,
setting new links, that was not before there. so, defining new like this: "http://www.aaa.com/cgi-bin/aa.pl?login=john, but anybody can enter line like this manually
and see john's data. passing password every time with login name and checking it again and again? I think there should be a more fair solution

thanks

your web server can do this automatically.
Most web servers (like Apache, iPlanet, etc.) support document protection using .htaccess file.
