I have a server with a .CGI on it than can be invoked by putting something like:
into the address bar of a browser. This displays a single line of text that is the value of the requested variable, like 1230667891 in this case.
I've been trying things like:
var cjul='<!--#exec cgi="http://172.16.0.78/variable.cgi?variable=current_julian"-->';
But I'm not having any luck. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
