CGI-Based Numerical Calculation
In the CGI-based version of the numerical calculation package, the majority of the computation is done on the Web server. The version of the software package often take more time to give results and has the potential to bog down the server if there are many users. However, in most cases, the version requires no additional software to use.
Ch Applet-Based Numerical Calculation
In the applet-based version of the numerical calculation package, the majority of computation is done by the client computer. A small Ch program is created by the Web server and sent to the client where it is executed. This version of the software package usually produces results more quickly, but requires that Ch be installed on the client machine.
