WWW-aware-apps SRE-http WWW-aware applications

and other useful tidbits

Assembled here are several sets of www-related tools and utilities:

  1. Tools and utilities specifically designed for the SRE-http web server
  2. Tools and utilties that will work under any CGI-BIN compliant OS/2 web server (such as SRE-http, APACHE, GoHttp, Web/2, Domino, etc.). Most of these can also be run more efficiently as SRE-http addons.
  3. Miscellaneous tools
28 Dec 2002 Since SRE-http has been supplanted by SREhttp/2, many of the following products are no longer supported.

Although still functional (as SRE-http addons, CGI-BIN scripts, and standalone programs), the examples and demos (scattered through the docmentation) will not work.

However, for several of these products SREhttp/2 versions, with working demos, are available!
