Daycgi Worksheet - Daylight CGI applications
Daycgi is comprised of a set of web appications which use the tool set
in the $DY_ROOT/daycgi directory. Daycgi is not a toolkit,
but rather a set of utilities which enable chemical information
delivery via a CGI script. For example, the shell script
smi2gif generates a gif depiction from a SMILES string, which
enables 2-D chemical structures to be added to web pages. See
the class notes for Day 2 for information on writing your own
CGI application with Daycgi tools.
