ok, it's not difficult; but it needs some studying of the sources.

CGILua is structured as follows:

1) a launcher
2) CGILua libraries
3) CGILua pages

the first one is different for each webserver, the other two are constant.  I 
think the easiest to use for learning is the plain CGI launcher.  if your 
embedded webserver can call CGI processes, you should be able to make this 
one work.  of course, after that you'd like to create your own embedded 

the cgi launcher has two parts: a C file "_cgi.c" and a lua script "cgi.lua". 
the first one is compiled to an executable that gets the environment 
variables and stdi/o streams and calls the cgi.lua script.  the script sets 
up the SAPI environment (used and documented by CGILua) and calls 

that's all!

to make it work in your webserver, just make it call a short script that sets 
up the SAPI table with the functions needed to interface to your C++ code.
