    CGI scripts in c/c++ ?

    Hello, I was wondering if it possible to write a CGI script in C/C++ ? Would it be something like this:

    ==================
    #(path the perl)

    cout << "hello world!";
    ==================

    That would'nt work though would it, if it is possible to write a CGI script in C/C++, please could someone show me a hello world! example, thanks.

    Actually, if I'm not mistaken, you can write CGI scripts completely in C and quite a few of the ones out there are done this way. I'm not sure about the interface to get it to run on the net as I've never done one though.

    Cool EXTRA!!!

    What Prelude just said, is correct, but he forgot to tell you one small, yet important part:

    You need to compile the c/c++ code first, with gcc (on Unix/Linux machine of course, because i never saw a site running on windows(with iis server) using cgi), and then rename the file's type (*.out) to *.cgi and voilla you just wrote a cgi script in c/c++.

    I only tried that with c, and never c++, but i guess it's the same!
