Chapter 9. Scripting and Automation > Writing CGI Scripts for a Web Server

9.9. Writing CGI Scripts for a Web Server

WSH scripts have the potential to produce quite capable CGI programs for use with web servers: programs that are run by web-server software to generate dynamic web content. For example, CGI programs can be used to process data entered in web-based fill-out forms or to read data from files and produce web content on the fly.

Although a full discussion of CGI programming is beyond the scope of this book, there are some routines that are necessary to accomplish some basic CGI tasks with WSH scripts.
