How to auto prepend a cgi script ?


I use auto prepend in .htaccess for php files and work well, for example :
php_value auto_prepend_file "/var/www/html/file.php"
But how to do that for cgi script which is an executable ? For example :
php_value auto_prepend_file "/var/www/html/script.cgi"
This command return the content of the script.cgi file instead of executing it. So what is the issue or what i am missing to add in my .htaccess file to make the script execute ?

Thank you

As far as I know, it is not possible. Also it doesn't make much sense. A cgi typically uses some parameters and outputs a HTML page. You want it to be executed before a PHP script? If all you need to do is execute it, you can do it inside the PHP file that you auto_prepend.

PHP Code:
$output shell_exec("/var/www/html/script.cgi");
// what to do with $output?
