Compiled C-language CGI-BIN Programming with MySql

Because I have some heavy number-crunching scientific applications, I'd like
to program using the C language, CGI-BIN, and with MySQL (using its
C-language interface).

Is there anything I should know? For example, when Apache runs a CGI-BIN,
is there anything special about the environment (memory limits, etc.)?

Is the paradigm I proposed workable?

Thanks, Dave.

P.S.--I'm a heavy PHP user, but for some applications it isn't fast enough.

Sounds fine, although it depends.

So you're not using PHP at all? In which case:

comp.lang.c
comp.databases.mysql
alt.apache.configuration
comp.infosystems.www.authoring.cgi (although that seems fairly dead)

And cross-post. Don't multi-post.

You could compile your PHP; that usually gives you quite
a boost in CPU-intensive applications:
