    And one more magic trick to make it even easier.  There is a program uncgi that takes the information from the URL it is passed, decodes it to remove the various character encodings, and puts the information in to environment variables.  Makes GET style cgi programs a breeze.  (It also allows your programs to reside outside the CGI directory, but doesn't compromise security...)
