9.6  CGI modules/libraries

When you write CGI programs, you should consider using a code library, or module, to do most of the grunt work for you. This leads to fewer errors, and faster development.

If you’re writing CGI programs in Perl, modules are available on CPAN1 . The most popular module for this purpose is CGI.pm. You might also consider CGI::Lite, which implements a minimal set of functionality, which is all you need in most programs.

If you’re writing CGI programs in C, there are a variety of options. One of these is the CGIC library, from http://www.boutell.com/cgic/.
