Just a note - cgi-lib.pl is really a perl 4 thing with no module support.
CGI.pm (http://stein.cshl.org/WWW/software/CGI/) is a similar but more
robust replacement for perl 5 written as a module. CGI.pm is available in
pkgsrc under www/p5-CGI. I think cgi-lib.pl is not used as much anymore,
but you can check out the home page at http://cgi-lib.berkeley.edu/ (it
hasn't been updated since Feb 1998).
Of course, if you were just trying out an example you can ignore this ;o)
