    :
    CGI stands for Common Gateway Interface. It provides a standard for enabling a web server (like Apache, IIS) to call an external program (which may be written in any number of languages - Perl, C, even VB...) to handle a request. The specification states that certain things will be in environment variables, POSTed data will be on stdin and anything sent to stdout will be send to the browser. CGIs are expected to print valid HTTP headers. That's the basics of it - it's a pretty simple idea.

    : 2.) and which area its mostly involved in?
    Web development/web programming.
