Bugs and Enhancements
CGI2SAS has been tested using the following :-
In theory CGI2SAS should work on both Unix and Windows with ease. The Python
scripts were all written on, and partly tested using, Linux. Any feedback
in running CGI2SAS using the following will be gratefully received :-
- SAS v8.2
- Python 2.2 (threaded)
- Windows 2000 Pro
- Other web servers (the cgi2sas.py cgi script)
Python is a very powerful, open source, mature, high level scripting

You can download python from http://www.python.org/download/
Follow instructions on Python web site.
CGI2SAS also requires the Python Win32all API libraries which can be located at
Follow the install instructions on the Python web site. Note: threading
MUST be supported / compiled in.
Apache can be obtained at http://www.apache.org

Once Python and IIS have been installed IIS needs to be configured to run Python CGI scripts. You
will find excellent instructions at http://www.e-coli.net/pyiis.html
Using IIS you are restricted to using broker.py or cgi2sas.py. broker.exe cannot be used.
