thanks again ...

ill consider all this before develop ...
im not sure, but i have post it a long time ago with another
e-mail...on kepler br list.
my first need was develop web pages but i found it very difficult so i
switch to php, where i start to understand it all (socket, request,
server vars ... ) also thanks to firefox (firebug) ... my mom, dad,
girlfried ... :DDD

> A web app written using WSAPI can be run on CGI or FastCGI or Xavante.
> To illustrate, here are just a few of the possible stacks:
> Xavante - WSAPI - CGILua - an app using Lua Pages
> CGI - WSAPI - Orbit - an app written using Orbit and Orbit pages
> FastCGI - WSAPI - Sputnik - an app written by customizing Sputnik
> CGI - WSAPI - an app using WSAPI directly
> CGI - WSAPI - a wsapi filter - another wsapi filter - an app using
> WSAPI directly
