Hi monks,

I have a large amount of legacy CGI Perl scripts, which were made to be executed by Apache modperl.

What I want to do is move to a http server inside a perl script (like AnyEvent::HTTPD) that supports calling the perl CGI scripts - and then package the entire thing as a single exe using par. This is so users can run it without having to have either apache or perl installed.

Now CGI seems fairly straight forward (content to STDIN, headers to ENV, and STDOUT is the HTTP response), but I figured someone has probably done this before? Or are there better ideas?

I am essentially doing this to execute the cgi in the httpd request callback:

{ local *STDOUT; local *STDIN; #local %ENV; #$ENV{http-cookie} = $requestCookie; open(STDIN, "<", \$requestBody); open (STDOUT, '>>', \$response); do './cgi/'; }

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
