What is this CGI Wrapper thing for?
Thanks, sounds too complicated for me to make use of.sibanac said:CGI Wrapper is a sandbox for cgi scripts.
depending on what wrapper you use features may differ but generaly they include :
cgi is run as a specifide user/groups
checks if the scripts are called with the right number of arguments
stops execution if the script is called outiside specified directorys (usualy document-root/cgi-bin/ )
some more advanced wrappers also include memory limitiations (eg the script cant access anything outside it own allocated memory )
