That's funny because it's true.  I used cgicc several years ago to create a web app, and "rolled my own" template parsing functions, starting with the detection of HTML comments like "<!--FN=theFunctionToCall-->".  Of course, then you need to map that function name to the actual C++ function.  But dang it was speedy.
Thanks for the note on VBMcgi.  Bookmarked.

Hi Jay,

I had played around with cgicc last year but did not like it because personally, I don't like to mix my C++ code with html.  I ended up creating one application in VBMcgi ( which is better in my opinion for creating web applications.  VBMcgi uses a template type of system which is much better since all your html is contained in a template.

In the end, I ended up using Microsoft ATL Server although I like the VBMcgi concept much more.

If you have time, take a look at VBMcgi and let me know what you think.

Here is an application that I wrote in Microsoft ATL Server:

This application is a dll that loads once on IIS, then waits for requests.  It is extremely efficient since it does not fire up an exe for each request (I know that with fastcgi you can achieve similar).

Anyway, I wish more people did web development in C++.  I do maintenance on PHP and Perl applications and you can see the load on the server that they cause.  C++ causes hardly any noticable load at all which in my opinion is awsome!

Good morning all,
I'm developing a cgicc fastcgi application. I can serve regular html
pages just fine but when I try to do AJAX stuff it blows chunks
(that's a technical term). I'm using IIS with the fastcgi dll for
testing. My code is simple. I create a new httpresponse header and
populate it with '204' and 'No Content'. I send it and a
header. It looks like it matches the http 1.0
spec but I keep getting 500 errors from IIS. Any suggestions?
