I have a .htaccess file in my cgi-bin directory which requires valid-user for GET and POST. I want to override this with open access for a subdirectory of cgi-bin. For example:

http://mysite.com/cgi-bin/myscript.pl --> Requires authorisation
http://mysite.com/cgi-bin/public/mypublicreport.pl --> Anonymous access

Is this possible, and how do I do it?
