acgi dispatcher for MacOS X
The first public beta of acgi dispatcher for MacOS X now available! acgi dispatcher is a program that enables you to use acgi programs written in AppleScript or other AppleEvent aware languages to write cgi programs to be run with the Apache web server that is part of Mac OS X.

It also has the capability to run and serve pages while your machine is logged out. Installation is drag and drop and requires no manual editing of unix config files. In addition to supporting the traditional acgi AppleScript system acgi dispatcher adds some...
