[MD1] Pictorius' New CGI Toolkit


Pictorius Introduces New CGI Toolkit

Mac Web Developers Can Now Create CGIs & ACGIs Interactively
Write CGIs, Run & Edit Them Simultaneously While Watching the Results in
the Browser

October, 1996 - 1996 Pictorius Developer's Conference - Halifax, Nova
Scotia, Canada - Pictorius Incorporated announced 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 an award-winning, 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 users 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.

With the Pictorius CGI Toolkit, Web developers can interactively write,
test and debug CGIs using a high speed interpreter while the application,
the Web server and a browser are all running on one system. Any portion of
the source code can be changed while the application is running. Once the
CGI is functioning properly, Web developers simply compile it with either
the 68K or PowerMac compiler and their CGI is ready to deploy.

The unique, integrated editor/debugger included with the Pictorius CGI
Toolkit makes it a rapid development environment. The developer creates the
CGI logic, then switches to debug mode with full roll back/forward
capabilities, for step-through execution, making it easy for Web developers
to find and correct errors during execution.

Key Features
- Write CGIs and run them simultaneously while watching the results in the
- Allows editing of code and input on-the-fly
- Automatic handling of AppleEvents so users concentrate on building
- Delivers compact compiled code for 68k or native Power Mac
- Includes Pictorius Net Servers and an HTML Editor; everything needed to
develop CGIs in one package
- Includes 5 pre-written, ready-to-use CGIs:
1) Hit Counter (count the visitors to a site)
2) Mortgage Calculator (good example of forms and calculations)
3) Random Image (great for Web banners)
4) Random Re-Direct (generate a random URL)
5) Screen Shot (remotely take a picture of Web server status)

Shipping November 1, 1996, and available only for Apple Macintosh
computers, the Pictorius CGI Toolkit is $149US. Customers can order the CGI
Toolkit directly from Pictorius at 1-800-927-4847. Outside North America,
please call +1 (902) 492-2880 ext. 246.

System Requirements
The Pictorius CGI Toolkit requires a 68020 or higher Macintosh computer and
System 7.0 or higher. A complete installation of the CGI Toolkit will
require 40MB of disk space including the Pictorius Net Servers, HTML Editor
and CGI Tookit, with online documentation.
