This category includes sites that are related to the Common Gateway Interface (CGI), a common mechanism for submitting information over the Internet
Information about specific implementation platforms of CGI are listed under specific categories, e.g.
Commercial web development services should be submitted to the Web Design and Development
Please find a more specific sub-category for your listing - only exception sites are listed in this category.
Web hosts and web designers will NOT be listed in this category - there is a Computers/Internet/Web_Design_and_Development/Designers/ category which you should submit to.
This category lists sites with tutorials related to web programming which uses the Common Gateway Interface (CGI). The tutorials can cover every language, for example CGI programming with Perl, Java, C/C++ etc.
Please only submit your site if it contains real content related to CGI programming. If your site only contains a bunch of links to sites related to CGI, this is only more confusing for visitors to find the information they searched for.
In my opinion deep linking is allowed: If your site is already listed in some category in the Open Directory and you also have a few tutorial pages, you can submit these pages to this category for listing.
List of Cgi installation services and cgi consultants.
1. One page sites is not will be listed.
2. You must have some content on pages, not only ''I can help you install scripts, email me'' phrase.
3. We list ONLY cgi programmers sites, which offer installations, customizations, consulting or custom works.
4. We not list any FREE installation services. This is work - and it cannot be free.
The Common Gateway Interface (CGI) is a standard for interfacing external applications with information servers, such as HTTP or Web servers. A plain HTML document that the Web daemon retrieves is static, which means it exists in a constant state: a text file that doesn't change. A CGI program, on the other hand, is executed in real-time, so that it can output dynamic information.
For example, let's say that you wanted to "hook up" your Unix database to the World Wide Web, to allow people from all over the world to query it. Basically, you need to create a CGI program that the Web daemon will execute to transmit information to the database engine, and receive the results back again and display them to the client. This is an example of a gateway, and this is where CGI, currently version 1.1, got its origins.
The database example is a simple idea, but most of the time rather difficult to implement. There really is no limit as to what you can hook up to the Web. The only thing you need to remember is that whatever your CGI program does, it should not take too long to process. Otherwise, the user will just be staring at their browser waiting for something to happen.
