Running CGI's locally on OSX

OK, see previous post... I "hit the books" and was able to do the following

Put the Darwin engine in the two places  /Users/katir/Sites/cgi-bin/

And also in the /Library/WebServer/CGI-Executables/

I figured out how to use the on OSX and went in and CHMOD
everything to  755 (both engines in both places, the cgi-bin in my own Sites
folder and my test script below.)

#! /mc
On startUp
Put "hello"
End startUP

If I invoke the cgi from my browser


It just returns the ascii text of the cgi... I.e. Nothing is executed...
Same thing happens if I change the path to the engine to:

#! /Library/WebServer/CGI-Executables/mc

Still no go... 

Any clues?
