11.2.7 Testing your CGI script

Unfortunately, a CGI script will generally not run when you try it from the command line, and a script that works perfectly from the command line may fail mysteriously when run from the server.

Assuming your script has no syntax errors, yet it does not work, you have no choice but to read the next section.
