We create solutions that add interactivity to
your site or increase the amount of data / value you get out of
your own site. One way to do that is by using CGI technology.
CGI - (the Common Gateway
Interface) is a standard way for a Web server to pass a Web user's
request to an application program and to receive data back to
forward to the user. The common gateway interface provides a consistent
way for data to be passed from the user's request to the application
program and back to the user. This means that the person who writes
the application program can makes sure it gets used no matter
which operating system the server uses (PC, Macintosh, UNIX, OS/390,
or others). It's simply a basic way for information to be passed
from the Web server about your request to the application program
and back again.
The most commonly used CGI scripts are:
- for handling information passed from web page
Form to Email recipient;
- manipulating Database;
- building Guestbooks;
- Chat Rooms;
- Password Protection;
- Hit Counters.
