 CGI commands with command line args?

Is it possible to call a CGI program with command line arguments?
I can't get this to work (Apache 1.2 on Linux).

I also tried writing a script to call the program with the arguments
but then I lose the CGI information.

Any help is appreciated.

Read the CGI "spec", as it is.

Yes... call the cgi and follow it with a '?' then arguments separated by
'+' signs.  For example,
passes the three arguments to  At least it does on my
apache 1.2.4 on linux.  I just tried it out using the following perl

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n<html>
<head><title>Testing parameters</title>
foreach $parm (@ARGV) { print "$parm<br>" }
print "</body></html>";
