in reply to CGI.pm Disillusionment

It's OK to not like CGI, as long as you respect it. CGI.pm is one of the reasons for Perl's popularity on the web and allowed for building web pages without having to know HTML inside and out when you needed to collect data from the visitor. It was made for Perl programmers not web designers. It's hard to remember life without WYSIWYG HTML editors and an HTML specification that didn't support tables or images, but its all true. It is great to see it has been extended as far as it has, but for the most part the state of art is beyond it.
