ASP is an old (but still powerful) tool for making dynamic Web pages.
ASP is a technology (much like PHP) for executing scripts on a web server.
In this tutorial you will learn all you need to know about ASP.
This ASP tutorial contains hundreds of examples.
Our "Show Example" tool makes it easy to learn ASP, because it shows ASP code with parallel HTML output.
response.write("My first ASP script!")
Click on the "Show Example" button to see how it works!
When a browser requests a normal HTML file, the server just returns the file.
When a browser requests an ASP file, the server passes the request to the ASP engine which reads the ASP file and executes the server scripts in the file.
Finally the ASP file is returned to the browser as plain HTML.
