Part V: CGI and Perl > Web Server Programming with mod_perl

Chapter 15. Web Server Programming with mod_perl

mod_perl is an Apache module that embeds the Perl interpreter directly into Apache. There are many advantages to mod_perl:

  • Standard CGI programs can be converted to run significantly faster with little alteration under mod_perl.

  • Databases can be accessed much more efficiently under mod_perl.

  • You can write custom Apache modules and handlers easily, using Perl instead of C. mod_perl gives you access to all Apache request stages.

  • Perl code can be embedded into Apache configuration files.

  • Perl can be used for server-side includes.

  • You have access to the many tools written for mod_perl servers, such as Mason and AxKit.
