Hello everybody!
I want to put a back-end for my site, is there a CGI-Scripts tutorial Question
What scripting language do I need for CGI-Scripts?

Perl is needed for CGI-Scripts.

Just search the web for perl cgi tutorials.

Perhaps you might also like to look at PHP.

Not true, CGI (The Common Gateway Interface) is open to many programming langauges, Perl is most often used as it is easier than learning something like vb-script.

pakialamaers,

Check out this site, you should be able to find what your looking for.

http://cgi.resourceindex.com/Documentation/

They also have thousands of pre-written Perl scripts, some free some not. They also carry a wide range of other forms of scripting for use with CGI.

Hope this helps.

what is the difference between PERL and CGI?
Grimboy
CGI stands for Common Gateway Interface, as I understand it allows for a webserver to start up a script and hand it some information (The name of the page, GET and POST data...). It then outputs everything outputted from stdout to the webserver.

Perl stands for Practical Extraction and Reporting Language, it has existed since before the internet. Since it is a scripting language that's been around for a long time it is commonly deployed through CGI.

For your information, PHP is implemented through CGI here at frihost, this is probably due to the greater security features that CGI offers over the apache module.
