    testing a cgi script on my computer

    i need to create a cgi script for my schools website. i compiled a test cgi script to run on my computer to see if it works, but it didnt load in IE.

    i compiled it as i would any other program but renamed it to cgi instead of exe. here is the code but i dont think it matters.
    #include <stdio.h>
    int main()
    	printf("Content-type: text/html\n\n");
    	printf("<h1>Hello there!</h1>\n");
    	return 0;
    are there any webserver emulators i could try to run this script on? my webhost only provides cgi support to premium members and i am not one.
    You say "Impressive!", but I already know it
    I'm a hardcore player and I'm not afraid to show it

    You could try this. Free, no install required, and tiny!

    This is not an emulator, this is a web server, so be careful.
