in reply to Replacing CGI.pm

CGI.pm ain't nothing but a pure-perl module

So replacing CGI.pm ain't nothing but busywork

As long as your .cgis are written well, that is as per CGI to mod_perl Porting. mod_perl Coding guidelines, then they're ready to run virtually unaltered in persistent environment thanks to PSGI

    I agree to the extent that a CGI script that is ready to move to Apache::Registry is also ready to move to psgi via Plack::App::WrapCGI. I disagree that mod_perl should be recommended today. It RFC:SHOULD NOT be. We've been over the reasons this is the case, and has been for a decade, many times now.

      As we should

      I dont see that a particular persistent environment has been recommended. If you know of a better guide on fixing up cgi scripts you know what to do.
