Yes, I see the light now :)

That will work out for me. I don't know why I was trying take the other
route.

Thanks!

No.  With CGI you pass in a valid request, the server sets up the
environment with the CGI parameters and then runs the cgi program.  The
cgi params are not available via @ARGV they are either available from
stdin with POST or in QUERY_STRING with GET requests.

Say you want a predefiend search for the phrase "swish.cgi" you could
use this:


<a
href="http://swish-e.org/Discussion/search/swish.cgi?query=%22swish.cgi%
22">
    Search for &quot;swish.cgi&quot;
</a>

You want to show search results, right?  The pass in a URL that
generates the search results.  It should be that simple.
