question about #exec

Are there any obvious errors in the html code below? All except the #exec
command function as would be expected, but there is no action from
exectst.cgi - a compiled c program that's shown under the html code.

This is being tested from one of's shell accounts which, I
beleive, will accept html code with an #exec command.

All suggestions welcome  -   Hul

--- html code
<head><title>Title for exectest</title></head>
exec test -
<!--#exec cgi="/htdocs/userdirs/ht/pcgi-bin/exectst.cgi"-->

--- c program
int main(int argc, char **argv)
    printf("Content-type: text/html%c%c",10,10);
    printf("EXECTST is complete\n");

- for email, put the word "keeper" in the subject line -

You may have to name the file in a specific way (e.g. as a .shtml file),
or set the X (execute) bit on the file.  That sort of question is best
answered by someone who knows about the configuration of your host's

Thanks Tim. The lack of a .shtml desigination caused the problem.
