You need an htp server - Apache's the job - and any one of many
languages, a scripting language would be a good choice here and Perl
has all the options.
You might be asking what is the simplest most direct and cheapest way
to go about this. It seems you have a server? If not the US offer many
cheap reliable hosted options. Anyway, you need Perl, and if you go for
Perl you really need Linux. This pretty much applies to all the open
source scripting solutions.

invocation. Pretty simple, really. What is more complex is when your
input changes, but if it is slow changing, low volume, then this can

exists and the programming language would be either Perl or C#.
Any Suggestions? - Thanks..
