    You can write CGI scripts in C, although they wouldn't technically be Scripts, they'd be programs. I suppose they would run faster being pre-compiled and everything.

    i.e.
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main(void)
    {
      printf("Content-type: text/html\n\n");
      printf("<HTML><BODY>Hello</BODY></HTML>\n");
      return 0;
    }
    should work if it is compiled and set up right in the same way a similar perl script would work. But I don't know where to find a server which supports this. If you really need it, just download and run apache and set it up yourself.
