OK so I'm completely new to this and I'm just wondering if you can use cgi with NT/2000?
Everything I see on websites and forms seems to deal with PERL and Unix/Linux, and there seems to even be different extensions used as well?! Can someone please shed some light on this for me? Maybe point me to a NT/2000 resource for cgi?
Thanks guys.

Most CGI scripts are written in Perl. Perl for Windows can be found here:

If you want to set up a Perl/CGI environment on your Windows box, I'd recommend IndigoPerl


It comes with Perl and a preconfigured version of Apache so you can start writing Perl/CGI without having to worry about an webserver configurations.
