Re: Dynamically Served Pages?

The point is this: normally, when a CGI script
generates a page, that page doesn't actually
"exist", it's only shown in the browser of
the person who has requested it, the page is
not written onto any hard disk. That's what's
meant by "on the fly".

By the sound of it Tim Schulte's script actually
writes HTML pages onto the hard disk. This
message board behaves the same. The CGI script
actually writes HTML files onto the hard disk
instead of temporarily "flashing" the output
in the browser which is what most CGI scripts
do, and why robots ignore them.
