    The Cgipp Library is built upon Stephen F. Booth's Cgicc Library and is in many ways a thoroughly patched and improved version of Cgicc. During the time I have used Cgicc a great many changes has been made to increase portability, speed, and the safety of the cgi-programs. The original Cgicc library was very good, and it gave you a good interface for your cgi-programming. Up till about v0.2 I maintained compability with the original Cgicc class library and succeeded fairly well (minuscule changes needed for your existing applications). For Cgipp v0.30b there are more major changes to the library, so please check the documentation. Cgipp v0.3 is much easier to use than earlier versions and much safer to use (security bugs have been removed), and most (if not all) memory leaks have been removed. Cgipp v0.3 is not compatible with earlier versions, though only small changes will be needed to make your old code compatible with the new library.
