    CGI: The Common Gateway Interface is a way for a page
    	to ask for a program to be run on data from the page
    	that then generates another page which is sent to the
    	browser.

    Latex to HTML at CompSci CSUSB
    From Dr. Georgiou
    I have installed latex2html on orion (/usr/local/bin/) which is a
    program (perl script) that translates latex files to html.
    
    It has some limitations:  EQUATIONS and TABLES are first converted to
    gif's and then included; but unfortuanately we are missing some
    programs for equations and figures to be properly processed.
    
    TO USE:
    	latex2html myfile.tex
    and it will create a directory with the name 'myfile' where the
    myfile.html file will be found.
