Re: How common is mod_perl?
in thread How common is mod_perl?
Mason doesn't actually require mod_perl. It can run as CGI (however it will be very slow).
Does this mean, mod_perl only provides Mason the persistent CGI process capability? Or, are any other capabilities of mod_perl taken advantage of by Mason?
Put in another way, if the persistence of CGI processes is provided by in a non-mod_perl way (example, FastCGI or SpeedyCGI), does Mason work as effectively as in a mod_perl environment?
