NEWBIE Calling CGI scripts in ASP

Discussion in 'ASP General' started by Stephen Armstrong-Smith, Sep 18, 2003.

  1. Am very new to writing ASP, I cant find any tutorials on
    calling a CGI script from asp that returns with the data
    into a variable. This is what I am aiming to do.. I
    have an audio application called "OTSJUKE", this can be
    remotely controlled via a web browser, The in-built
    server recognises a few CGI commands but returns
    information that I dont want the end-users to see.. I
    want to setup asp that calls (if thats the right term)
    the OTSJUKE application, returns me the code into a
    variable, then i I can modify it and send it back to the
    user as my html. Hope someone can help, Thanks

  2. If the CGI app returns the "variables" in HTML, then you could simply parse
    the returned HTML. See www.aspfaq.com/2173
