Revolution as CGI in OS X

Well, don't hesitate to tell me to shut up if you've had enough of my
posts on this. I'm a little bewildered and frustrated that
Revolution's documentation and web site doesn't contain anything, at
least as far as I can tell, about setting up Revolution as a CGI. I
know about Andre Garcia's slick server project, and he's given me some
excellent tips. But I need to experiment with some basic cgi scripting
first, and all I need is the basic set up.
These are the instructions that I found at Takaaki Furukawa's site:
"Rename the engine to "revolution" (if you'd like). Put the engine in
the same directory as license.rev, and give the permission to execute.
(chmod +x revolution)".
My skull is really thick, so please humour me. Is the engine the
actual Revolution application (package) which resides in the Revolution
2.2 folder which resides in my Applications folder? Otherwise, I don't
know what the engine is. Do I simply then open the Terminal
application and enter "chmod +x revoution"? Do I save my cgi scripts
in .../WebServer/CGI-Executables? As for my own system, I do have Web
Sharing turned on.
Any assistance would be most appreciated.
