What are you trying to accomplish? Dr Dobbs had a good article a couple of months ago on making C++ servlets: http://www.ddj.com/documents/s=7027/ddj0204f/0204f.htm However if you are just learning standard C, this may take some time to digest. You can also write cgi apps in C, but again it all depends on what you are trying to accomplish. For standard web apps something like PHP and a standard sql database are easier to debug, however if you want to get into web services or similar type distributed applications over the web c or java would probably give you more coding flexibility.

I understand that C is very fast, and very powerful. How difficult is it to get C programs to interact with a web page? With mySQL? Or with a PHP page? Or is this what Perl's for?
