Taking a guess as to the intent of the poster:

CGI - Common Gateway Interface

This is the set of conventions for handling HTTP requests on the server side by which request parameters are parsed for use by a server application. Historically, Perl was the pioneer language in this area. Subsequent development for Java, PHP and etc have naturally stuck to these conventions as much as possible.
