It does indeed.  It is hidden.  Select Advanced User Mode.

They set the same preferences, and you can use either one to set the
preferences.  You can set your User Name with the Control Panel and then go
change it again later with the IC app.

By editing it in BBEdit with the BBEdit menu in MacPerl.  Save a file as
CGI Script (or "CGI Script (Taint Check)" if you have it), then close it
and select it from the "Edit..." menu under BBEdit in MacPerl.

If you have BBEdit 5.1, you can open the files directly from within BBEdit,
and export any files as CGI Script, Runtime, or any other format MacPerl
