Whats CGI ?
When CGI programming is done using Perl, is it just normal Perl programming which has some features because of which this program is called CGI ?
Do I need to import or is there anything different needed to be done to code CGI ? I mean, is there any compiler required , or say servlets require servlet interface, does CGI need anything like that ?

You don't necessarily have to use Perl to program CGI.
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
