MacASP 1.0 has been released. It’s a CGI, or Common Gateway Interface, that enables Web site creators to develop dynamic sites using PowerPC-based Macs.
Bear in mind that MacASP is not compatible with Microsoft’s Active Server Pages (ASP) technology. But it uses a scripted language similar to BASIC, and it supports Mac functions like AppleScript. It also runs on Mac OS 8.6 or higher, including Mac OS X in its Carbon version.
MacASP has been tested with Mac Web servers including various flavors of WebSTAR, WebTen, macHTTP, Apache, and Personal Web Sharing. It’s Virtual Hosting-compliant, multi-threaded, PowerKey and Rebound compatible, and features an extensive array of capabilities, including external database support via ODBC.
Licensing for MacASP runs from free to US$299 depending on its deployment. For more details, examples, documentation and downloads, visit the MacASP Web site.
