Actually, booth, CGI on the AS/400 is pretty simple, once you do one.

It is all just a matter of passing parameters all over the place.  A CGI
script for a web page is something like:
http://www.myhome.com/cgi/somecgi.pl&somedata&somemoredata&evenmoredata
or something like that (I don't remember the exact syntax).

The URL actually points to a program, which receives the parameters between the
ampersands.  Then you use the data however you wish, usually to process some 
data

and then create an active web page to respond in kind.

It is really no harder than passing parameters between CL and RPG.

Regards,

Jim Langston
