I particularly like the Python web scripting that installs with
Win32Com extensions. Then, you can execute Python from within an ASP
file like this ...

<html>
<head>
<title>About Me</title>
</head>
<body>
<%@ Language=Python %>
<% url = Request.ServerVariables("PATH_INFO") %>
<h2>Current Document</h2>
<%
for key in Request.ServerVariables:
	print("%s=%s<br>"%(key,Request.ServerVariables(key))
%>
</body>
</html>
