Hi...

I want to develop a console application with Delphi, to use it as a CGI application. So I need to read/write from/to the standard in/output. How can I do this...?

Thanx

Hello you two!

I know this that's the way to do a console app, and I've tried many other ways, and some kinda components, but never got it working. here is similar to what I get....When I try to run the app I get "This program can not run without Microsoft Windows", or something similar. I can't exactly see what it says because it closes it immediately and the app runs in the background. When I open the task menager by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del and close the app so it stops running, my computer hangs up and the on;ly way to get out of that is ti press the Reset button. Any ideas on why it is doing that? or maybe what settings I need to set so it can run on my computer too...

regards,
Viktor Ivanov
