Python CGI test script

Use this to find out what Python facilities your web server provides. Upload it to a directory where you can run CGI scripts. If the web server runs Unix, remember to make the uploaded script executable. Then load the URL for the CGI script in a web browser. If this produces an error message, try changing the interpreter name on the first line to /usr/local/bin/python and uploading the script again. Once it is working, you should have a list of available Python executables. You may be able to choose an alternate version of Python by changing the interpreter name again.
