What Do I Absolutely Need To Know In CGI

  • 4 Feb, 2012

    If you're already a programmer,CGI is extremely straightforward, and just three resources should get you up to speed in the time it takes to read them:1) Installation notes for your HTTPD.Is it configured to run CGI scripts, and if so how does it identify that a URL should be executed?(Check your manuals, READMEs, ISP webpages/FAQS, and if you still can't find it ask your server administrator).2) The CGI specification at NCSA tells you all you need to know to get your programs running as CGI applications.3) WWW Security FAQ. This is not required to 'get it working', butis essential reading if you want to KEEP it working!http://www.w3.org/Security/Faq/www-security-faq.htmlIf you're NOT already a programmer, you'll have to learn. If you wouldfind it hard to write, say, a 'grep' or 'cat' utility to run from thecommandline, then you will probably have a hard time with CGI. Makesure your programs work from the commandline BEFORE trying them with CGI,so that at least one possible source of errors has been dealt with.
