In your configuration file for the inets application, include the
ErlScriptAlias directive and list all modules which are allowed to be
invoked via HTTP. Once that is done, and URL of the form:

http://server:port/cgi-bin/erl/Module/Function?args

will result in the function Module:Function/2 being invoked.
