Your question is off-topic for this mailing list, but I'll give you a quick
Yes, you can use C (or C++) to replace Perl in CGI programming.
Whether it is appropriate or not depends on the problem to be solved. Perl
is a very powerful, very efficient scripting language. It is well suited
to programmatically create HTML
Perl programmers can create "write only code" that is hard to maintain. Or
with a little tender loving care, Perl scripts can be very large, and at
the same time very maintainable.
Perl 6 will even give better facilities to creating large, maintainable
Perl scripts, and enhance the object oriented capabilities for developers.
