CGI scripts are commonly found on Web servers and contain code written in Perl, C, or other programming languages. They run on the Web server and may generate HTML that is sent to the client's Web browser.
CGI scripts are typically stored in the "cgi-bin" folder within the home folder of a website. They may be used to process form data, send mail messages, or perform other tasks.
