Quid Pro Quo includes the ability to use plug-ins that duplicate the functionality of external CGIs. However, since plug-ins share memory and processor time with Quid Pro Quo, they can run much faster and more efficiently than external CGIs. This page links to several examples of plug-in usage. Note that to use these examples, you must be accessing the page through the Quid Pro Quo web server, and NOT opening the files directly from your hard drive.
The Quid Pro Quo manual includes a section on using plug-ins.

The Indexer page shows how to use Server Side Includes in combination with the Indexer plug-in to create a custom directory index.
