AppleSearch ACGI

Developer / company: Exodus

AppleSearch ACGI provides a mechanism for users to make their AppleSearch information sources available to others on the World Wide Web. AppleSearch ACGI is implemented as an asynchronous gateway (ACGI) application for use with WebSTAR.

AppleSearch ACGI supports two types of WWW client interfaces. The simplest uses the search arguments passed from a WWW client like Mosaic or MacWeb to perform searches on an AppleSearch information source. There is a more comprehensive interface available that uses fill-in forms to collect search arguments from the user. To use the forms interface, you must access WebSTAR and AppleSearch ACGI using a WWW client capable of supporting forms. Netscape Navigator, MacWeb and Mosaic 2.0 both support forms.

AppleSearch ACGI is invoked by WebSTAR in response to a client's request for a particular URL. WebSTAR passes arguments to AppleSearch ACGI through custom AppleEvents. These arguments are obtained from the path and search arguments contained in the URL sent to WebSTAR. If you are unfamiliar with path and search arguments, you may want to read through the documentation and examples that come with WebSTAR.

AppleSearch ACGI uses these arguments to perform search operations with the AppleSearch server that it is connected to. The results are formatted into an HTML document that is automatically generated by AppleSearch ACGI and returned to WebSTAR (and then to the WWW client.) Much of the information in the generated forms can be modified by changing TEXT resources within the AppleSearch ACGI application.

The AppleSearch ACGI software seems to be old or discontinued.
Such programs may not work on modern operating systems properly, are no longer available and supported by their original developers, or are simply obsolete for their purpose. Sometimes companies offer limited support through their website.

Note: You can click on any file extension link from the list below, to view its detailed information. The list of extensions used or otherwise associated with the application may not be complete, because many common file extensions on our website, such as jpg (pictures) or txt (text files), can be opened by a large number of applications, or are too general file format. However most, if not all directly associated file extensions should be listed with its appropriate program. Although its likely, that some file extensions may be missing from the list of associated file extensions with the application, yet they can be opened, be part of, or otherwise be associated with the program.
