This approach is meant for data that changes periodically (hourly, daily, weekly) and not for real-time applications. Here is a simple example that should run on any 2200 system that has a recent System Base. If you wanted to periodically build a Web page showing what system software is installed on your 2200 system, you'd write simple ECL to create the page by reading the SGSs in SYS$*DATA$.CO$INSTALL$/COMUS$ and generating the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML).
Then you might, for example, use cpFTP to ftp the page to your Web server (changing the specifics to those appropriate for your system) :
@CPFTP,V open 22.214.171.124 userid password cd /opt/spyglass/htmls put work.html softwareinst.html close quit
The finished product is a Web page describing the software installed on your system.
