t.w.t.CGIScript(resource.Resource) : class documentation

Part of twisted.web.twcgi View Source View In Hierarchy

Known subclasses: twisted.web.twcgi.FilteredScript

CGIScript is a resource which runs child processes according to the CGI specification.

The implementation is complex due to the fact that it requires asynchronous IPC with an external process with an unpleasant protocol.

Method __init__ Initialize, with the name of a CGI script file.
Method render Do various things to conform to the CGI specification.
Method runProcess Run the cgi script.

I will set up the usual slew of environment variables, then spin off a process.
