CGI Programming in Scheme

We now return to CGI programming in Scheme.

CGI programming is mainly functional programming

  • Our support of CGI Programming in Scheme

    • A simple library to deal with the Common Gateway Interface

    • An ad hoc library to support the generation of HTML output

    • Other libraries, for instance dealing with time, colors, and reading the textual content of a file.

From a practical point of view Scheme is a realistic language for CGI programming

This conclusion is drawn from a variety of different examples, which we have implemented. Most of the examples have been used to support various aspects of 'Open University' students located off campus.
