>> Altho I think you may need your head examined on this one, Sebastiani. While I agree there is nothing wrong with using C to do cgi, there is a reason 95% of it is done with perl in real life AFAIK.
It has a large existing codebase and a relatively short learning curve. And unlike a C program, you generally don't have to have special permissions to execute it!
>> You can write a functional cgi script in about 5 lines of perl. Using a "lower level" language here is sort of pointless.
Sure the syntax may be more compact, but the idea that it somehow "harder" to do in C is ridiculous. You would just need a small library of code to interact with the server and you could of course reuse the code, so - your point?
