however, unless you set it up as a stateful editor or had a line-oriented
There is also the PYG system for pygopherd designed for this sort of thing
geomyidae does execute scripts that way:
% script.cgi $search $arguments
Now all the flexibility is given to the script.
But about big input editing: Telnet is available everywhere.
This would requires some more programming skill, but it doesn't
inherit the drawbacks of gopher's simplicity. What's missing is
an easy way to couple a gopherd and a telnetd and some easy way
to produce curses applications. I wouldn't propose hypertext
Standardizing such a telnet<>gopherd bridge would allow all flex-
ibility of the web in the gopherspace.
