i'm trying run a cgi script from a c program using execve(). It seems to be able to open and run the cgi file. but instead of actually generating graphical html it generates html code. example: execve("this.cgi", NULL, NULL)
/this.cgi /this.cgi <html> . . . the rest of the html code
I can't figure out why this is.
int status; pid_t pid; pid = fork(); dup2(fileno(fp), 1); dup2(fileno(fp), 2); close(fileno(fp)); char dot_slash = "./"; char *dsPtr = dot_slash; strcat(dsPtr, file_name); puts(dsPtr); char *arg; arg = NULL; //arg = NULL; execve(dsPtr, arg, NULL);
