IMHO a BASIC interpreter is more difficult and needs more intelligence (syntax checking !!!) then a parser which reads lines and acts according the tags. > MRDOM> WOP! The pages!

This is where Frank is absolutely right: store the incoming stuff on a, preferable fast, medium. The only problem I forsee is the "fast". A standard 1541 stores about 400 Bytes/second. A 9600 BAUD means plm. 900 Bytes/second; we have a traffic jam. (I forget the possibility of storing it in native RAM for the moment) > About images.

This is a PC-browser, isn't it? What is "CGI" and "ISP"? Groetjes, Ruud http://home.hccnet.nl/g.baltissen/index.htm - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
