The software thatSearch machine provides a list of suitable on the basis the search word left and produces a web page, which represents this list to the user comfortably.

The possibility of generating web pages dynamically as a function of user inputs and data base contents made the Web fast a universalPlatform for all kinds of applications. The advantages are in independence from operating systems and other characteristics of the Clients. Basic conditions are only a network connection to the server and a Webbrowser.

To generating dynamic web pages each program is applicable, thaton the server system to implement leaves itself. In order to simplify programming, however standards were introduced like the Common gateway interface, in order to make applications of Web also independently of the kind of the Web server.
