There is in Linux also a package called eperl: embedded perl. It works
probably in this way.

My problem is not to understand what ASP is from phenomenological point
of view -- it is scripting in HTML, as many told on the list -- but how
it compare with other embedded scripting: javascript, PHP3, etc.
In other words: I wish to know is the ASP programmer access more features,
as far OS command are concerned, compared to other scripting.
