VBMcgi, a free multiplatform C++ library for CGI programming that isolates the webmaster and webdesigner.


See VBMcgi home page.

If you know C/C++, VBMcgi is the CGI library you have been looking for. Here are the main reasons:

  • It is 100% free, and comes with original source code.
  • It is designed from step zero to be multiplatform (tested on Windows and Unix servers).
  • All features included: form decode, cookies, and a lot more.
  • It is the only CGI library in C++ that completely isolates the webmaster and web design. In practical terms, this means that you can use commercial HTML design software (that saves sophisticated HTML coding) such as DreamWeaver, Front Page, etc. See details.
  • The CGI programs can be short and very powerful, because the complex code is inside the VBMcgi library. Deliver complete solutions to your customers in binary format. They will be satisfied, but won't be able to reverse engineer what you have done.

GeneralNaming suggestion PinmemberJason Douglas4-Mar-02 10:49 
I was curious at first why a project developed with C++ would be named anything beginning with "VB." Then, I saw the name on the article and realized that's where it comes from. I know that all of us software engineering types just enjoy immortalizing our own images in our code, but in this case I would suggest not using VB for VC code as it can be quite misleading. Wink | ;)
Also, thanks for the great set of code for web development! I might keep this in mind for my next web site.
