i am looking at cgi.rb module, and it looks like it produces valid HTTP
responses such as

HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found
Date: Tue, 29 Nov 2005 06:52:21 GMT\r\n
Content-Length: 0\r\n
Connection: close\r\n
Content-Type: text/html\r\n

what i expected it to produce is CGI headers so that the web server (I
am using Apache) could interpret the CGI response correctly and act on

Status: 404 Not Found\r\n
Content-Type: text/html\r\n

has anyone used cgi.rb? i know rails, nitro etc use it. has anyone
noticed this? can this be controlled?

Are you setting "nph" => true when calling CGI#out or CGI#header?  If
are, you probably don't want to.  I believe that controls whether or not
HTTP version and response are printed (among other variables like
you're using mod_ruby or IIS).  See line 559 of cgi.rb in a Ruby
1.8.2distro for details.
