Common Gateway Interface (CGI) is a standard method used to generate dynamic content on web pages and web applications. CGI, when implemented on a web server, provides an interface between the web server and programs that generate the web content. These programs are known as CGI scripts or simply CGIs; they are usually written in a scripting language, but can be written in any programming language including ICM.
An ICM CGI script consists of the following important elements:
The simplest 'Hello World' ICM CGI script may look like this:
#!/usr/prog/icm/icm64 -w/usr/prog/icm printf "Content-type: text/html;\n\n" print "Hello from ICM SGI script" quit
Tables in HTML output
ICM provides a command show html to generate a nicely formatted HTML code for shell tables. The command generates fully self-contained HTML code with head and body tags. If you CGI script produces a single HTML table you can use this command as is.
#!/usr/prog/icm/icm64 -w/usr/prog/icm printf "Content-type: text/html;\n\n" params = Collection(web) if (Exist(param["filename"])) then # reads sn SDF file on the server read table mol param["filename"] name="t" show html t endif quit
