This paper explains how to automatically transform a batch program into a standard CGI program. The transformation preserves the program’s behavior even if consumers use the back button or the window-cloning facilities of their Web browsers. The paper demonstrates the workings of the transformation for both Scheme and C programs and discusses how it applies to any full-fledged programming language.
