1) An algorithm is a way of doing something. It can be almost anything complex,
like 3d code.

2) A CGI script processes requests on a web page, such as filling in a name and
password. Though it can be written in C, it takes a little more doing than
viewed at first.

3) Datafiles are described in the allegro.txt file with allegro. If it's too
complex, try to post more specific questions.
