 What approximate terms until finish you think?

 Because there isn't embedded scripts - can I control HTTP Auth from
external CGI? Does Pi3Web has such feature?

 I'm sorry, but I can't understand what did you say. I'm very weak in
English - so can you repeat phrase above in more simple way? :-(

 And what terms of finishing this work? What features will be in this
language? Can you give a list of them?

 I can use PHP as external CGI - but this is slow way :( I'm searching for
platform, which works under Windows and has the same perfomance and features
as Apache/PHP under Unix (I have a lots of experience with this pair, but
under Windows they can't be used in such way).

 BTW can anybody help to solve the problem: I have binary file, which should
be downloaded to client. This file is in unaccessible place on server and
user must call to script, which do identification and give file only when
user is allowed to get it. I need to suggest filename to browser. I do this
in such way:

 Content-type: application/octet-stream; name="file.abc"
 Content-disposition: filename="file.abc"
 Content-length: 100000

 Netscape works fine - it suggest to save file.abc. M$IE suggest fantastic
name like SDFKJWOD. What kinds of headers I need to use for correct work both
(or all) browsers?
