Good morning.

The CGI in this case is stated to mean a CGI program executed in Lectora real-time, so that it can output dynamic information. The purpose would be to transmit information from say, your Lectora test to a database for later retrieval or receive the information from the database into lectora and display them.

So Perl and ASP are used to do the above.

Best regards,

Bruman.

Of particular interest is capturing test results of a course residing on a web server (not an LMS). My specific question is this: Does "CGI" really mean "CGI" or is it being generically used to mean any server-side technology, such as PHP? The documentation includes a Perl example (which is really does use CGI) and an ASP example, which isn't really CGI, which prompts my question. Thanks.
