Hi! I got a message from a David Neelands telling me that I was doing a great work with PHP Unearthed but that I needed to lift up my socks as regards my table of contents. Thank you David. I am looking into it. All you other folks keep the comments, suggestions and criticism coming. I need it.
Well. Feels good to know there is someone watching. Now, back to today.
In this lesson, we'll handle CGI - the Common Gateway Interface. Contrary to what most beginners may think, CGI is not a Programming Language. Neither is it in itself a tangible subject. Nope!
I know what you are saying... "if CGI is not Programming, what is it?"
Before I get into telling you what CGI is, let me remind you (un-necessarily so) that you need to have seriously read the preceeding lessons if you haven't.
