I have a web account that supports scripting and cgi-bin.
How can I let my Perl program read and write data to a text file, but at
the same time, I don't want anyone from being able to type the filename
into their browser and download it?
What would the file permissions be set at? What would be the permissions
of the directory where my text data file is located be set at?
