    Before I Get Too Deep in ASP...

    Before I start learning ASP for real, I'd like to ask a few questions about the language. I took a cursory glance at it today because my boss gave me a new assignment.

    Firstly, my assignment is to turn a VB program, used to query a database and for various other functions like data analysis, signal processing, etc, into a web-based thing. I know several programs that can do such things, but I ready about ASP, and it seemed that ASP was simply a more powerful utility where you can use JS and VB functions. I was wondering how easy it would be to port the VB program to ASP and run it online.

    If you think that this is easier to do with ASP, other than a language like PHP or PERL, can you suggest any books or websites where I might learn the language?

    Thanks in advance.

    ASP is most commonly used with VBScript - check out:

    http://www.w3schools.com/asp

    That has a lot of basic examples, but if you are a programmer, they should be pretty helpful.

    Here is Microsoft's ASP Guide, as well:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...f/aspguide.htm

    Some other websites that I find useful:

    http://www.liquidrage.com
    http://www.aspalliance.com

    If you are able to change the VB-program to a dll, then its really easy using the methods and properties in an asp-file, then you van use the dll for a simplified vb-client app AND a webbased client

    Hmmm....that's interesting. Would you know of anywhere that I can find some code snippets for something like it? It doesn't have to be complete code, but I'd like to know the specifics on how you'd go about doing this...

    Thanks, whammy, for the sites and tutorial suggestion!
