simple script using CGIHTTPServer?

Let's say I've got the following little script called test1.py:

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n"
print "<html><bod y>"
print "<h1>Hello World</h1>"
print "</body></html>"

I want to run a script that takes advantage of CGIHTTPServer so that I
can send a browser to http://localhost:8081/test1.py and see the
results of the script above. What's the shortest such script that I
need to make this work? After some web searching, I found
http://manatee.mojam.com/~skip/python/web-server.py and
http://www.doc.ic.ac.uk/~tb100/proje.../standalone.py but
couldn't get either to work.

You don't need a script at all. Create a directory called cgi-bin. Copy
your script to that directory. From the directory that CONTAINS cgi-bin,
run this:

python /python23/lib/CGIHTTPServer.p y 8081

adjusting the path accordingly.

Send your browser to http://localhost:8081/cgi-bin/test1.py.

Hi, as a small capabilities demo I coded the piece below to show how to use Python for cgi'ing on localhost and it more or less does the trick :-). However, I when I freeze it with py2exe, starting the resulting exe fires up the server allright, but fails execute cgi commands correctly (i.e. the expected output - let's say from cgi.test()) - is no longer emitted to the browser...). Is there some py2exe-magic I need to do that I don't...

i was looking at twisted but it appears to be WAY beyond my megar skills at this point. so i think CGIHTTPServer will fit my needs if it is pretty stable. I have a small python cgi that i was building and i had this great idea of having the cgi server kinda rolled into it for various portability reasons and maybe some future features that would not have apache to realy on.

Is there any way that I can pass cgi parameters to my script locally, before i upload it to the webserver, so that i can debug it. Normally I would pass parameters like this: www.webserver.com/script.cgi?TERM1=hello&FIELD1=TTL&TERM2=goodby&FIELD2=GOVT The problem is that I get errors that do not show up when I run the script locally and I do not have access to the error logs.
