( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Thank you for your advice.

My application is new and is not tied to mod_perl. The reason I am looking to develop with mod_perl, is because the application is very simple, but I want maximum performance, and minimal dependencies.

I am aware of frameworks such as Catalyst and Dancer, and I have used them in the past to create fancy web sites, but for this project I am looking to create a simple file server that serves files from disc over http. If it where any simpler, I could have done the whole thing using only Apache configuration, mod_rewrite etc, but I need a small amount of logic to serve some files on the fly that don't actually exist on disc, and divert some requests to different URLs based on the client.

Based on your advice, I took a look at Plack, and it does look feasible, lightweight, and testable. Also, I can install all the dependences via Ubuntu packages, which will simplify deployment.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • 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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
