Calling C++ functions from CGI

After posting a question previously on how to talk to a C++ library class from a web client (view https://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/CPP/Q_26278170.html) it was suggested that I should use CGI for doing so.

I have been reading up on CGI and how I should best do this. I noted there is even a capability called inline:c++ in which C++ code can be written within a perl CGI script.

I tried to install inline:c++ but I keep getting errors when I try to do so.

Is inline:C++ even the best option (if for example using a perl script).?

I'm very new to this to be honest & still quite unsure how I can call functions from a C++ class/library from CGI.  Any further suggestions or examples (samples) would be very much appreciated.

My web server is IIS & I wish to execute my Classic ASP website -> interacting with C++ libraries sitting on the webserver maching  (probably using CGI as suggested in https://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/CPP/Q_26278170.html)

Thanks in advance!
