Probably not the best location for this but the SSI is within a HTML page (if needed to be moved please do :-)). I have a SSI

that is included in a HTML Page. I want to pass in a parameter or two into this script but trying to add on an argument results in a SSI failure. How can I pass in parameters into this script via SSI? TIA for any helpful advice.

Which web server / framework are you running (httpd, Tomcat, etc.)?

I haven't use Service Side Includes for a long time so I could be wrong, but shouldn't you be using cmd= rather than cgi= to execute a script and include the results in the page?

    <!--#exec cmd="/cgi-bin/dir1/myscript.pl arg1 arg2" -->
There are no more "hours", it's centi-days. They say it's better, but this tiny ad says it's stupid:
Java file APIs (DOC, XLS, PDF, and many more)
