RE: big performance gain

    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.

        There's a huge performance difference between use CGI and use CGI qw(:standard) because the latter has to make 150 or so symbols through an import, where the former simply loads the "lincoln loader" selfloader and compiles subroutines as needed.
