If you haven't done so already, I would suggest reading and understanding
more about the application layer, http protocol [1]. Either in dry, RFC
form, or perhaps reading Writing Apache Modules [2], though your milage may

Not to force you to use apache, there are alternatives - choose one and
stick with it; however, the point is to understand http, and what you need
to do for your program to _work_ [3].  Since you're looking to work on an
embedded device you'll probably be looking into something else as a server.

Your frontend - web GUI - is secondary.  Writing html can be done outside
of your application, as a mock document to get you started and quickly
build the look and feel you want.  You later integrate that mock into your
actual CGI program.


Other people may have better resources to get you started, but that is
where I would start - thinking back to my student days.
