Actually, I'm not sure where STDERR is redirected to when invoked 
by an httpd under CGI.  STDOUT will end up going back to the 
client's browser, which is why you need to emit the "content:" 
header, or whatever, before you print anything else to STDOUT.  

Reviewing die(), I see that "yipes!" will end up going to STDERR.  
Perhaps that goes to the web server's error log.  It sure would be 
nice if you could get the the server to redirect it to STDOUT.  

Then again, I guess there's nothing preventing you from redirecting 
STDERR yourself, *before* doing anything hinky.  Hmmmm...  

Okay, I know how to do that in C.  How do you do that in PERL?
