Welcome to Alan's Technolinx
|This Technical Links site was begun in 1995 as a reference site for
students attending my webmaster seminars. It is updated regularly.
It contains a number of Technical Reference Links which could answer many
of your questions about creating Websites using HTML, Graphics, CGI, Java
A lot of the hottest new links are at my "CA97" Lecture Website,
so don't miss that. It includes download links to all of the software I
use in my lectures/classes - CA97
Please use these pages to find links to the content you'll
need to print your own Reference Manuals.

any unfinished work you may stumble upon. Email me and I'll fill you in..

The quality that makes you
go to great effort to reduce overall energy expenditure. It makes you write
labour-saving programs that other people will find useful, and document
what you wrote so you don't have to answer so many questions about it.
Hence the first great virtue of a programmer."

What IS CGI?
- The Common Gateway Interface - a brief intro.
- (HTML for Client-side CGI control) It's a preprocessor for your
HTML documents - runs on your server (costs $500) and adds amazing functionality
to HTML+HTML-Script-encoded pages! Read/write/search data files, evaluate
the bugs - and it works with any browser!
