I want to build a web based database so that I can search for answers from different locations. I am using IIS on an NT machine. Which language would be best for writing the search engine. What are my options? Am I limited to dll's and ODBC only. Is there something like CGI or Perl for NT? Maybe java would be best? I don't have a lot of experience with IIS, although I have done a decent amount with a unix based web server and cgi and perl.
If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate any input you have.
