I have written a threaded CGI framework in FutureBASIC that works very well
for developing CGI's. Don't learn PERL if you're a good BASIC programmer.
MacPerl has some nasty tricks it plays on your server (like entering into a
non-quittable mode forcing a server power-recycle in order to reboot). I've
written a number of CGI applications (counter, form processor, redirector,
guestbook, bulletin board, payment calculator).
