CGIProxy is, as its name suggests, a CGI proxy software package. A CGI (Common Gateway Interface) proxy appears to a user as a web page that allows the user to access a different site through it.

CGIProxy is written in the Perl programming language. It can be installed on any web server which can execute a Perl program via CGI, and which supports Non-Parsed Header CGI scripts.[2] Supported protocols include HTTP, FTP and SSL, as well as related technologies: Javascript, Shockwave Flash.


Though the nature of the Perl language practically requires that the source code of CGIProxy is visible to those who install it, CGIProxy is not technically open source software. It is, however, extensively commented and modularized, and has been designed from the start to encourage users to modify and extend it for their own purposes.[citation needed] (It has also been designed to help people learn Perl.)[citation needed] The author licenses it to be used freely for non-commercial use, and will negotiate license terms for commercial use.[1]
