background image for cgi file


Hi there --

Is there a way to have a background image for a cgi file? If so, what is the syntax that is used to accomplish this? Thanks.

There's is no such thing as a "CGI File" unless you meant files with CGI extensions. and either way it wouldn't make sense for a file to have a background image.

Cgi

CGI stands for Common Gateway Interface and means executable files that are launched through webservers. A CGI can be a binary application or some interpreted script.

CGI executables do not have backgrounds, but given the fact that their output usually becomes part of the output from the web server, it can generate HTML contents that apply a background image to a web page.
