Hi Experts:

I am developing a web server. It has to do simple form processing and upload files to the server.

I am developing it in C++.

I found a libraries called libcgi and cgicc.

I am thinking of using cgicc. Could you please advise if there any other libary.
I will be using SSL/TLS in connectivity.  

I have todo concurrent form processing. Should I go ahead and use cgicc ? cgicc has been developed in C++, language of choice for my web server.

It has to be developed in short time....look forward to your advise.

Best Regards,

    cgicc should be ok and since it is already in c++ you can check the code yourself and tweek it if needed.

    Well you might think  about using libapr.  It is used for developing Apache and well I guess it can cope with beeing used for yet another web server....
