I have a question about the asp apps that you can get that zip unzip make images stuff like that.
How are they made? Is it just comprised of asp? if so is it js or vb?
A webpage with the info would probably benefit more as I'm sure it requres great lengths of coding...

Usualy people will create their own objects (.dll) with vb and register them on the server. With the dll registered a coder can use asp to interact with the methods, properties, and events of the object. Does this answer your question?

I see, I have seen in some places webhosts have in their faq that they don't support user created dlls.
Do you mean by created with vb that the language is vb or the program?
Could I use C to do it as I am learning C at the moment.

Components (dlls) can be made from several languages including C/C++. You can interact with a component no matter what language it's written in as long as you have permission to do so by your ISP (webhost). Even if you write the dll in C, you will not be able to use it if your ISP doesn't allow user-created dlls.
That's one of the main things that makes me want to get a static IP address so that I can host from home with my DSL connection and write my own components. I've written a few for the company I work for because we host our own website.
