in reply to Tutorial wish list

I think tis is a great idea.

I would love to see a tutorial on setting up mod_perl/apache and what you need to do to your cgi scripts to make them use the creamy mod_perl goodness. I've been told it is quite easy, but I've had problems following the docs.

Also, a tutorial on Template Toolkit would be fantastic. There is a lot of information in the docs, so something that could thin it down a bit would be great.

Just my two cents worth

    I'll second the mod_perl Guide ( Stas et al. has worked long and hard to put together this very comprehensive document. No, it is not short. But if you read the guide, along with the Eagle book "Writing Apache Modules w/ Perl and C", you will be able to do all the common tasks a mod_perl programmer might be asked to do. And you'll at least know where to start for the uncommon requests.

    There is also the Mod_perl Cookbook coming out in January I gather the format is similar to the Perl Cookbook, which is most helpful if you have a specific task you would like to complete.

    Well, mod_perl tutorial is rather short:

    Start tutorial

    Read mod_perl Guide.

    End tutorial
