There are a large number of CGI resources on the web. You can discuss CGI problems with other users on the Usenet group comp.infosystems.www.authoring.cgi2. And the -servers mailing list from the HTML Writers Guild is a great source of answers to your questions. You can find out more at http://www.hwg.org/lists/hwg-servers/.
And, of course, you should probably read the CGI specification, which has all the details on the operation of CGI programs. You can find the original version at the NCSA3 and there is an updated draft at the Common Gateway Interface RFC project4 .
When you post a question about a CGI problem that you’re having, whether to a mailing list, or to a newsgroup, make sure you provide enough information about what happened, what you expected to happen, and how what actually happened was different, what server you’re running, what language your CGI program was in, and, if possible, the offending code. This will make finding your problem much simpler.
Note that questions about CGI problems should never be posted to the Apache bug database unless you are sure you have found a problem in the Apache source code.
