Is it possible to add or change the HTTP header info using javascript??

like  the header() function in PHP..whose description is as follows..

header ( string string [, bool replace [, int http_response_code]])

header() is used to send raw HTTP headers. See the HTTP/1.1 specification for more information on HTTP headers.

Or is it possible to make modifications like this using C or any other language.

My problem is i had got a CGI program written in C and when accessed should send a http response code..

Thanks in advance...

You can't turn a 200 response into a 404 with JS if thats what you are after.

Basic C is a fairly simple to learn so my sugestion is that you get yourself a good book on the subject (and read it)
so that you can rewrite the CGI program.
