Email        : fpcunits(_ at _)z505(_._)com
Homepage     : http://z505.com/cgi-bin/qkcont/qkcont.cgi?p=Pascal-Web-Unit-Project
FTP site     : http://z505.com/pascal/pwu/pwu-1.0a.zip
Version      : 1.0a
Date         : 2005-10-07
Category     : Internet
Supported OS : Linux, Windows, Other
Description  :
Derived from the Pascal Server Pages project, with different 
long term goals.  Uses Pascal syntax instead of C, and focuses on 
integrated Pascal web programming rather than multi-language,
less integrated Ansi C style development. 
 - PWU will ease any Pascal programmer into Pascal web development
 - Pascal syntax, units, and standards
 - Retrieve Session and Cookie variables
 - Retrieve URL variables
 - Retrieve/Send GET and POST variables
 - GZIP compression
 - Regular Expressions and functions available
 - String handling
 - Filter or trim insecure HTML hijack attempts through input
 - Templates (macro variable formatting). Option separate design 
   from programming, with template files that contain {$variables}.
 - Mail/SMTP functions
 - Automatic security:
   Protection from cross site scripting (XSS) and malicious input.
   Level 2 security is on by default.
 - Manual Securty, Bypass Automatic Security:
   Even with security on, you can escape this security 
   in special situations by explicitly using functions 
   that have filtering/trimming disabled.  
 - Integrated IDE
 - Linux web applications can be created on MS Windows in an
   integrated environment, no need to mangle multiple OS's.
   Upload your linux Pascal web programs from MS Windows.
