I have a CGI program written in Delphi that receives the query_string value and processes it, how do I return the results to the server? I am writing it in Delphi 2 and use OmniHTPPd 1.01 as my test server.

Can you write to the standard output stream in Delphi?  I think you can, if so, that is where your output needs to go. When the web server runs a cgi program, it hooks the program's input and output stream to itself.

I dont't know! I'm asking you! I've tried everything I could find in the useless Delphi help system - I'm asking here as a last resort. I may ask it in the Delphi topic area if no-one knows here.
