The following "cgi-bin" script can be used to trigger "RLimitCPU" in a
correctly functioning Apache. Setting the limits to 2 seconds of CPU
time typically permits around 10 seconds of real time to watch the time
grow in "top". On a correctly functioning Apache, the process
terminates shortly after 2 seconds of CPU time are incurred. Thanks.
