Is there a script language that do not need the interpreter
(compiler) to be on the ISP's server to run.For instance
perl needs an interpreter to be located on the ISP's machine ,therefore all your script should be located there.

 Is there a script language that produce .exe files which run without compiler? How about visual basic?Or other?

Any language that can write to stdout and read stdin can do CGI. VB is not a good solution, but on NT server, there is something called WIN-CGI which can assist you to use VB.

If don't use perl, I prefer to use c/c++.  But you can also use other choices such batch file, if the ISP uses unix, then you can have more choices as the unix shell is more powerful

I expect the reason for this question is because the service provider does not allow cgi scripts to be run.

There is no way around this really. You can't download exe files since they (normally) have to be compiled on the machine itself or another machine of the same type (e.g. NT workstation or UNIX). In any case service providers look on exe files even more unfavourably than script files.

In any case the server is often set up so that it will not run scripts or programs from other than the cgi-bin directory. If you don't have one of these then it is unlikely that you will be able to run any scripts or programs.

There is an alpha level Perl compiler. Given a Perl script
this compiler will create a compiled form, which can be
run standalone. Visit www.perl.com and scout around, there
is a link to download the compiler either from there or from
the CPAN archives.
