Mivascript programming resources
Mivascript is a proprietary tag based web scripting language developed by Miva Inc. Adoption of Mivascript has been limited by early versions requiring an expensive proprietary server module, in addition, for a time, purchase of a compiler. Both the compiler and the server module are now free, (although not open source) and can be installed on freeBSD, Windows, or Linux. There is also a free personal web server for Windows for developmental purposes. Unfortunately documentation for recent releases is rather incomplete.
Mivascript has the advantage of being a self contained scripting environment that can be installed via ftp on hosts that that support user cgi-bin. It has built in database support using xbase III file format, and can also access mySQL via an addin library.
Create IT has developed Mivascript web applications since 2001.
