If you're using DBI, please use Apache::DBI. And yes, get away from that stopgap Apache::Registry!

    Ooops, sorry, of course I used Apache::DBI, Version 0.87 :).

      What makes me curious is the difference you see when you stop using I realize this won't translate to the full-blown handler version of the script, but did you try loading via default in mod_perl, or did you have

      use CGI;
      in your script?

        Yeah, I would be interested in this too. Is being used from within a test script, or from You could also try only importing things like use CGI qw/:standard/. I believe has some magic code inside to help with memory when you do so, although I haven't perused the source in quite some time now. Either way, if is being preloaded I wouldn't think you would see as much of a hit, since it stays resident in memory and isn't loaded each time the script is called.


        No, I didn't preload, I just said "use CGI qw(:standard);".

        I did this because I wanted to measure the performance of a CGI script that's handed over to Apache::Registry.
