Working with CGI Wrapper files
A CGI Wrapper file is an ABL procedure file (.w) that includes a standard template for processing web requests. (It does not have an associated HTML source file.) It directs HTML output to the WebSpeed-defined output stream, WEBSTREAM, by using &OUT statements.
Since it is essentially an ABL procedure file, you use the ABL Editor for editing CGI Wrapper files. The ABL Editor supports editing CGI Wrapper files with basic color coding of HTML markup inside strings, indentation of &OUT statements, and content assistance for ABL elements including WebSpeed super procedures.
A wizard is available for creating new CGI Wrapper files (File > New > CGI Wrapper).
Compilation of a CGI Wrapper generates r-code that can be executed by a WebSpeed agent.
