Q5801 Is ASP a language?

You are here: irt.org | FAQ | ASP | Q5801 [ previous next ]

ASP is not a language like VBScript or JavaScript - it is a hosting environment that extends the normal capabilities of a web server and exposes objects for use in web programming. It is accessed by either VBScript (it's default) or JavaScript, and in fact many of the functions you use client-side with these languages can be cut- and-pasted into an ASP page.

ASP's coding, regardless of the langauge you choose, is all ascii text and resides right along side normal HTML and is delimited by <% and %>. Example:


' Here is some output:
response.write Now() ' writes the current date and time.
