Pictorius Introduces New CGI Toolkit, Speeding Development Cycle


Pictorius Incorporated omannounced at their Developer's Conference the Pictorius CGI Toolkit, a new product designed especially for Web developers looking for an easier and faster way to create CGIs (Common Gateway Interface) and ACGIs (Asynchronous CGI) for their Mac-based Web sites.

The Pictorius CGI Toolkit includes the CGI development environment, Pictorius Net Servers and a shareware HTML Editor so users have everything they need to write, compile, test and deploy CGIs in one package. Sample CGIs are included to help Web developers get started. The Pictorius CGI Toolkit is also compatible with other Mac-based Web servers that support CGIs and ACGIs, including WebStar.

Prior to the release of the Pictorius CGI Toolkit , Web developers were forced into using complicated, text-based tools and third generation languages, such as AppleScript, C and PERL to develop CGIs. The typical development cycle required developers to write the code, compile it, run and test it and then debug to fix any errors in the logic or syntax, recompile, test again, tweak it for performance and then compile it again, until the code was final. The Pictorius CGI Toolkit helps developers avoid this time-consuming and tedious process.
