fastCGI is kind of like turning your script into a unix daemon!!

it's pretty cool.

anyways, you can use it because it's part of the default cgi distribution so try this

#bang
use whatever;
use CGI::Fast;


while(new CGI::Fast)
{
# rest of script as it was before

}


it is not different from CGI, instead, it makes YOUR cgi script listen at a port on unix, when a CGI request comes in it immediately passes those params to that script, WITHOUT the script loading, because it is already loaded.

hope that helps.

I would only use it if I had a slow script .. which I dont :)


but it basicially speeds your script be preloading any modules you use.

the operations themselves are at regular speed.
