What is CGI?
CGI (Common Gateway Interface) is a standard method of extending web server functionality by executing programs or scripts on a Web server, in response to web browser requests. A common use of CGI is in form processing, where the Web browser sends form data to a CGI script on the server, the script integrates the data with a database, and sends back the results as a Web page. Use of CGI can make a Web page much more dynamic and add interactivity for the user.
