This from the top of the two scripts... hope this helps -- let me know
if you have any questions:

-- begin genweb.cgi
my $versionid = '$Id: genweb.cgi,v 1.3 2002/01/30 05:42:45 vikas Exp $';#

# ------------
# This program displays SNIPS events in HTML format (for an alternative
# to the snipstv curses program).
# It can run as a standalone perl program or as a CGI. It detects the
# mode automatically from the environment.
# [...]
# Note that even if a public user were to view any of these files, they
# still need to authenticate in snipsweb.cgi before they can edit any
# update file, etc.

-- end genweb.cgi

-- begin snipsweb.cgi
# $Header: /cvsroot/snips/snipsweb/snipsweb.cgi,v 1.4 2002/01/30 05:42:04 vikas Exp $
#                       snipsweb.cgi
# A CGI script which interfaces with the html generated by the snips web
# script 'genweb.cgi'.
# This script is the companion to genweb.cgi. It allows administrator to add
# status messages and to 'hide' devices as well as rudimentary troubleshooting.
-- end snipsweb.cgi
