in reply to .ASP vs .CGI - could someone clarify this?

Ok, first of all if you know Visual Basic you know ASP. I run a Windows NT server with IIS and ActivePerl.

If I want to make a quick script I make it in ASP because it takes a few keystrokes to do simple things. It also comes up with less compatibility errors than Perl. If I'm doing a large complicated project that involves alot of file reading and writing I use Perl.

ASP isn't as powerful as Perl but for small scripts that you have to right quickly on a NT it works well.

If you want to checkout what it looks like goto and goto the ASP section. They have some decent examples.
