Dear All,

I am writing to ask if you would please test our first public release of
Rcgi, a CGI WWW interface to R.  We've added a few new tricks to what has
gone before, the most interesting of which is the ability to use "embedded
code": you can mix user input and code, allowing the HTML author to do
anything from load in data sets to enter most of the commands for users
without writing CGI scripts.  Graphical output is possible in PostScript or
GIF formats and the executed code is presented to the user for revision.

A demonstration and download is available from
We're especially interested in any comments, suggestions or improvements
that you may have.

The software requires
	- R (prefer 0.61 or later)
	- Perl 5
	- gzip tools
	- Ghostscript (for GIF output)
	- NetPBM (for GIF output)
	- A CGI-enabled web server (eg Apache)
