What is CGI?

Answer

The Common Gateway Interface, or CGI, is a standard for external gateway programs to interface with information servers such as HTTP servers.

A plain HTML document is static, which means it exists in a constant state: a text file that doesn't change.

A CGI program, on the other hand, is executed in real-time, so that it can output dynamic information.
