Dutch translation:Afbeeldprogramma + grafische bestanden
Explanation:
To understand what there is to translate, one has to understand what a common gateway interface (cgi) does, especially in combination of Perl (which stands for Practical extraction and reporting language)
A Perl program on a cgi is used to generate dynamic web pages, by retrieving information (data or pics) from a database.
At one hand you have the software managing the db, and at the other the software (perl + cgi) for displaying the data on the browser screen of the surfer.

Let's suppose that in English the whole phrase says : program for the display of picture files ==> programma voor het afbeelden van grafische bestanden. And so on.

You can obtain the same with javascript, but it won't work on big databases of course.
Javascript is often used for image rollovers (image swap when mousepointer comes over certain area of the html page), which of course is also a form of picture file display.

Programma-informatie weergeven & Afbeeldingsbestanden


Explanation:
Hi,

If with Display Program they mean Display Program Information then Programma-informatie weergeven is the correct option. They could also mean a program used to display but I can't picture how you would use this without more context.

I specialize in software and hardware documentation.

Regards!
