You can reduce the time that the CGI stays running down from 5 minutes to 1
minute using ResEdit.  Open the CGI, look for a "time" resource, open that,
then open "Minutes to idle".  You should see the ASCII digits 05.  Change
them to 01 to reduce the idle to 1 minute.  Unfortunately (for you, at
least) changing it to 00 doesn't cause it to quit immediately, but to keep
running forever!  1 minute should be a bit more tolerable than 5 minutes,

(This is documented in "MacPerl, Power and Ease", by the way.  I think
every MacPerl programmer should own this.  Alternatively it is available on
the Web.  Since I own the book, and don't have a URL handy.)

All the usual ResEdit warnings apply, of course; don't ResEdit anything you
can't stand to loose.
