Revolution as CGI

Hello everyone,

I've been intrigued by the idea of using Rev as a CGI for some time, 
and of late have been frustrated by FileMaker's online update anomalies 
when scripts and global variables are part of a web-based database.  At 
any rate, I'm ready to take the web plunge with Rev, but there's a 
couple of things I'd appreciate clarification on.

First, there's the chmod stuff for permission to execute files.  I've 
seen the number 775 and 777 thrown around.  Which is it?

Second, and this is no doubt a dumb question, but I can have many 
scripts in separate (text) files located in my bin folder, can't I?  Is 
there a particular naming convention (.cgi?)?
