I have modyfied the script a bit so I can make a search without any aditional html. I whant to use this on my "whats new" page so I can past in a search of the 10 last items. I have tested to write it in the "location" in Netscape and it works fine but when I whant to use it with SSI it don't work. It say: [an error occurred while processing this directive] where the SSI chould bee.
It compile the SSI so that work but...

I have done sone search on the net by my own and now I have small problem that whould solve everything if you can help me with it...

The problem is that you can't have a query in the URL so I need a cgiscript that I can deplicate to everything that I whant it to. I need it too run db.cgi?bla bla bla... The query must be in the CGIscrip and then I duplicate it.

I'm no CGI veteran, but after thinking about it a bit, I realized that I use a survey script called surveysays.cgi that does close to what you want.

surveysays.cgi by itself is a regular non-SSI CGI script that requires a query in the URL and variables to be set to run. But what the author did is to have a mini cgi script called poll1.cgi, that essentially just passes variables handcoded and calls a subroutine from the main cgi. In poll1.cgi, you set the variables you want to pass to surveysays.cgi. Similarly, if you decide on a new survey, change the variables in poll1.cgi and save it as poll2.cgi.

This way, browser sees
<!-- exec cgi=poll1.cgi --> and executes it.

Inside poll1.cgi is the following
require "surveysays.cgi";
pass other variables that surveysays.cgi needs.
For your example,

&SurveySays; - I guess you substitute with the correct listing (search) routine name from db.cgi here.

If you want I can email you the survey script, you might be able to figure it out better if you see it in action yourself.
