    Is it possible to create cgi's in c++? I already know that and thought it might be easier than learning Perl from scratch. If it is possible is there any sites that have good tutorials or good books that cover cgi and c++?

    Yes you can program CGI in C++ but if you are doing simple tasks i'd recommend learning Perl becuase it'll be more concise code. if you aree building robust apps then C will be fine.

    As for tutorial i'd check out

    To build CGI in C++ you just need to read input data from stdin and put output data to stdout. But this isn't very efficent way for server side development imho.
