Netscape Server CGI Authorization Patch
The Netscape Server CGI Authorization Plugin is an NSAPI add-in module which fixes a "feature" of Netscape Enterprise & FastTrack web servers which prevents CGI scripts from receiving a WWW client's HTTP_AUTHORIZATION header in the environment which it uses as it runs (meaning that you cannot control or verify authorization from a CGI script -- any authorized users & passwords must be explicitly registered in a server password database via the admin server in order to implement restricted access to CGI scripts). This is unacceptable in any dynamic application which needs to manage it's own access control.
This NSAPI plugin is a work-around which finds any HTTP_AUTHORIZATION headers in a request, and makes the value of this header available to CGI scripts by copying it to the environment variable HTTP_CGI_AUTHORIZATION.
Please see the README file for more details.
