One thing I would like to clarify - what is the purpose of:

echo -e "Content-type: text/plain\n\n"


From what I understand - it is destined for browser, but I actually get it on the page like:

Content-type: text/plain

File is bar


Am I misunderstanding something?

    The echo command causes the string to be printed rather than interpeted by the browser. This is the cgi script exicuting.
