Python To Cgi In Windows
I was messing around with Apache on my Linux computer, so I decided just for kicks I would install it on my Windows computer. Now, my question is, how do I create a .cgi file in Windows in the Python language. Its not like I can save something as .cgi, I must have to compile it somehow... Can someone help me with this?

I don't have Apache on Windows set up at the moment but from memory:
The setup of CGI is very much the same as it is for Linux. Place the file in directory that you have configured for CGI use. (The Apache documents explain this and if you Google apache windows CGI you'll also find additional help).
You need to have the path to python as the first line in the python module:
So that Apache knows where to find the executable.

Nope, no compilation. Its exactly the same setup as on *nix except the path you put at the top of you're CGI file is the path to Python on your windows system - like grim said. It's really easy to set up actually so i don't think you'll have any problems with it .
