You can still call show_cgi with "DO show_cgi IN fwAdmin", but the content will not end up in html_data.  It will either be sent directly to the browser if buffering is off, or it will end up in the output buffer.  The following code is a hack that may help you while you are transitioning to something better:

* Enable buffering
Response.Buffer = .T.
DO show_cgi IN fwAdmin
* Retrieve the request data from the output buffer
html_out = 'content-type: text/html' + CRLF + CRLF + ;
* Empty the output buffer

The output of show_cgi will end up in the html_out, just like in version 1.X.  If you save the above code in a wrapper program named show_cgi.prg in your Program Root folder, your programs should be able to function just like before.
Please note that this is a hack that may or may not function in future versions.  A more robust technique would be for you to write you own function that returns all necessary information in a variable.  This can be easily done via the Request.FormArray(), Request.QueryStringArray(), Request.CookieArray() and Request.ServerVariablesArray() methods.

After upgrading from 1.29c to 3.1 we have this problem. We have alot of code that utilized SHOW_CGI as a method to dump variables etc. It would DO SHOW_CGI then email the contents of HTML_OUT. Now SHOW_CGI is not found. I tried Server.Execute as well. These are all in .prgs of course. I do not want to modify all of our legacy prgs to make them script files.
Any ideas?
