CGI Forms

You may ask "What does CGI stand for?"  In technical terms, CGI is the Common Gateway Interface for server side processing.  The CGI permits interactivity between a client and a host operating system through the World Wide Web via HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol).

In other words, CGI allows someone visiting your Web site to run a program on the server hosting your website that performs a specified task.  CGI is also know as a "form-processing program."  For example, you may want to have visitors complete a CGI form to mail you a message.  The "contact us" button on the left does this very thing.  The form may include the visitor's name, any identifying information that you may wish to include.  The CGI form will gather information from the form and then perform an action.  In this case, the action is to send you an E-mail message.

There are many other situations where a CGI form will help you in collecting information from your visitors.  That is where we come in.  One of the most common CGI languages is called PERL.  C and Unix shell scripts (C Shell, Born Shell, Korn Shell, etc) are also common CGI languages.  4Me2Win has highly skilled staff in all of these languages, ready to accomodate your needs.
