Product Description:

Programming on the Web today can involve any of several technologies, but the Common Gateway Interface (CGI) has held its ground as the most mature method--and one of the most powerful ones--of providing dynamic web content. CGI is a generic interface for calling external programs to crunch numbers, query databases, generate customized graphics, or perform any other server-side task. There was a time when CGI was the only game in town for server-side programming; today, although we have ASP, PHP, Java servlets, and ColdFusion (among others), CGI continues to be the most ubiquitous server-side technology on the Web.CGI programs can be written in any programming language, but Perl is by far the most popular language for CGI. Initially developed over a decade ago for text processing, Perl has evolved into a powerful object-oriented language, while retaining its simplicity of use. CGI programmers appreciate Perl's text manipulation features and its CGI.pm module, which gives a well-integrated object-oriented interface to practically all CGI-related tasks. While other languages might be more elegant or more efficient, Perl is still considered the primary language for CGI.CGI Programming with Perl, Second Edition, offers a comprehensive explanation of using CGI to serve dynamic web content. Based on the best-selling CGI Programming on the World Wide Web, this edition has been completely rewritten to demonstrate current techniques available with the CGI.pm module and the latest versions of Perl. The book starts at the beginning, by explaining how CGI works, and then moves swiftly into the subtle details of developing CGI programs.Topics include:

  • Incorporating JavaScript for form validation
  • Controlling browser caching
  • Making CGI scripts secure in Perl
  • Working with databases
  • Creating simple search engines
  • Maintaining state between multiple sessions
  • Generating graphics dynamically
  • Improving performance of your CGI scripts

Product Description:
convey a great deal of information, but eventually their limitations become clear. What if you wish to provide dynamic data--information that changes over time? What if you want to sell products on your Web site and secure payment information from users? Or what if you seek to provide a search facility that permits a Web database to be explored? Dynamic resources of this sort are accomplished through CGI (Common Gateway Interface) programming. CGI programs can take advantage of any resource available to the server computer to generate their output and can also accept input from the user through forms. These two basic capabilities have led to a wide variety of applications, such as forms processing, generation of inline images and movies, the formatting of data sets based on queries to a database, real-time updates to Web pages, and more. CGI Programming in C and Perl shows you how to create these interactive, multimedia documents via CGI programming in two practical languages: C, which has distinct performance advantages, and Perl, one of the most popular for CGI today. Applications and source code are presented in both languages in the book and on the CD-ROM. Youll learn how to: g

Product Description:

The World Wide Web is more than a place to put up clever documents and pretty pictures. With a little study and practice, you can offer interactive queries and serve instant information from databases, worked up into colorful graphics. That is what the Common Gateway Interface (CGI) offers.This book offers a comprehensive explanation of CGI and related techniques for people who hold on to the dream of providing their own information servers on the Web.Good scripting is not limited to a knowledge of CGI -- you need to know something about other programming tools that organize data and make the output look attractive. Gundavaram starts at the beginning, explaining the value of CGI and how it works, and takes you swiftly into the subtle details of programming. The book offers a comprehensive look at the job of providing information dynamically on the Web.For most of the examples, this book uses the most common platform (UNIX) and the most popular language (Perl) used for CGI programming today. However, it also introduces the essentials of making CGI work with other platforms and languages. The actual programming techniques are not too different from one platform and language to another; the lessons from this book can be applied to any tools you choose.Topics include:

  • Basic Perl techniques for parsing and output
  • Embedding Server Side Includes (SSI)
  • Graphics and simple animation
  • Forms and magic cookies
  • Gateways and SQL processing
  • Internet communications
  • Examples of games, imagemap manipulation, and other advanced applications

Product Description:
The Common Gateway Interface (CGI) is an essential technology for the development of interactive Web pages. This rapidly growing field is one of the hottest areas of Internet development, and the Tool Command Language (Tcl) is ideally suited for all aspects of CGI development. Although Perl is currently the most popular language for CGI development, Tcl is an ideal development environment. Tcl's rich set of string manipulation commands and well-defined syntax greatly facilitate the dynamic creation of HTML documents, a key aspect of CGI programming. In addition to raw power, many extensions, such as Expect, make the Tcl environment ideal for complex scripting tasks, such as automating telnet or ftp sites from inside a Web page interface. CGI Programming with Tcl illustrates the many advantages Tcl holds for CGI programmers and demonstrates how to create powerful CGI applications. This book presents a series of increasingly sophisticated applications, beginning with a simple Hello World application and culminating in Web-based interfaces to back-end databases such as Oracle. Through these examples, you will learn Tcl programming essentials and valuable CGI programming techniques.Specific topics covered include: *A complete review of the CGI specification *How to build and process HTML forms *Debugging your CGI programs *Processing form data with CGI programs *Server Side Includes--allows you to embed commands inside your HTML files Accessing databases built entirely with Tcl *Image maps--creating clickable images for navigating links *Magic cookies and the privacy issues surrounding them *Using OraTcl to provide an interface to an Oracle database *Using the Tcl browser plug-in to run code inside your browser *Using Tcl's socket support for building a Web-based client/server chat room An experienced programmer unfamiliar with Tcl can learn the language by reading this must-have reference. Tcl's straightforward syntax and similarity to C make it possible for any programmer to work through the examples. Furthermore, Appendix C provides a Tcl reference. The accompanying CD-ROM contains complete source code for all the examples in the book, as well as a CGI library that makes it easy to generate CGI programs that dynamically produce HTML Web pages. 0201606291B04062001
