Common Gateway Interface

   Abbreviated CGI. A standard way that programs can interface with Web servers and allow them to run applications such as search engines and to access databases and other back-end applications.
   CGI defines the field specifics and control tags to be placed in an HTML document, the environment variables where the Web server places information for use by scripts, and the flow of information between client Web browser, the server, and the Web server scripts. CGI is platform-independent.
