Meta-HTML is a powerful, extensible server-side programming language specifically designed for working on the World Wide Web. It resembles a cross between HTML and Lisp and has a huge existing function library, including support for sockets, image creation, Perl, GNU plot, etc. It is extensible in both Meta-HTML and other languages (C, etc.) Although it is a genuine programming language, suitable for large-scale symbolic manipulation, it provides the most commonly desired Web functionality as built-in primitives, so you don't have to write them. A Web page is written, using both HTML and meta-HTML. When a browser requests a page, that page is passed through the meta-HTML interpreter, which dynamically processes any meta-HTML statements to produce a final HTML page that's delivered to the browser.
This is a GNU package:metahtml
