Pike

Pike is the 'native' language of Roxen, and is directly supported by the web server. This also makes it the most powerful language in Roxen, since it allows direct interfacing with the server's native API.

It is possible that the Roxen administrator will prefer not to allow ordinary users to take advantage of this functionality, since it can compromise web server security; but even if this is the case for your site, Pike can still be available through CGI, if the Pike interpreter has been installed in a publicly available place in your system.

See the section about Pike in the System Developer Manual for more details about Pike scripts.

Note!

A special feature that might be enabled in your Roxen server is to allow Pike code in XML-style Preprocessor Instructions. This takes the form of <?pike _the_code_goes_here_ ?>, and is described in the section about Programming Tags in this manual.
