Web Application with C++ and FastCGI

Sep 10, 2008

The free library Fastcgi++ Version 1.0, which enables the programming of web applications in C++ language, is now available.

Originally a C++ alternative to the official FastCGI developers kit, the Fastcgi++ library has since developed into a framework offering all the C++ facilities. The library in Version 1.0 uses the web interface FastCGI, and has no support for the old CGI protocol.

According to the developers, the library impresses with efficient memory management and CPU usage. Session data is organized into relevant data types and internationalization and Unicode support are also featured.

Fastcgi++ 1.0 is licensed under LGPLv3 and the software as source text Tarball, together with API-documentation, is ready for download.
