ICOBOL for Web Servers

The basic Web Server (cgiCOBOL) Runtime Environment includes a special version of the ICOBOL runtime system designed for the web server operating environment, as well as the usual system management utilities and the License Manager.

The primary difference between the web server runtime system and the standard runtime system is in how it handles the input and output that would normally be directed to a dumb terminal or console window. In the web server environment, the input and output are directed to the client's browser over TCP/IP. Thus the usual screen handler that is part of the runtime system must be disabled. The input and output are passed directly to and from the ACCEPT and DISPLAY statements.
