Charming man. I wish I had a daughter so I could forbid her to marry one...

Being a Python fan, Python has the cgi traceback which works well :-)

cgi2sas doesnt trap major errors at the mo, just an empty _webout. You have the source code for cgi2sas to amend as would like. Now that i've discovered about the syscc, i'll add something (not sure what). the problem is when a transaction stuffs up what to do??? have an application recovery or system recovery? At the mo cgi2sas is mosty compatible with sas/intrnet, its a fine line between compatability and nice features.

cgi2sas has better logging facilities than sas/intrnet (imho), i've taken a more debugging point of view so the log viewer reports any errors during testing. Production code should never break - well thats the theory ;-)
