HTTP is used to request resources, not just files. A resource is some parcel of information that can be identified by a URL (it's the "R" in URL). The most common kind of resource is a file, but a resource may also be a dynamically-generated query result, the output of a CGI script, or something else. It may help to think of a resource as similar to a file, but more general. As a practical matter, almost all HTTP resources are currently either files or server-side script output.
