Framework for writing CGI applications

Monolith is a framework for web applications. Instead of thinking of your web application as a series of pages and forms, Monolith gives you basic widgets like buttons, images, form fields, tables and so on, which you can use to build up your web application or construct reusable super-widgets. In this way, building a web application is rather like constructing a traditional GUI application using Gtk, Motif, Windows/MFC, Java/JFC, etc.

Monolith applications are written in C or C++.

Monolith applications compile down to standalone shared object scripts which can be run directly from the rws micro web server.
