Yes, sure you can roll your own HTML.

If you do that, you do not need the HTML functions of CGI.pm and you can replace CGI.pm by CGI::Simple (less overhead and faster).

CGI::Simple slower than CGI?
by epoptai (Curate) on Dec 30, 2003 at 01:50 UTC
    I took your advice and plugged CGI::Simple::Standard into a current project and found it consistently about 1/10 to 2/10 of a second slower than standard CGI. Current versions of both modules on activestate. Changing one line changed the output from times():
    #use CGI qw(Vars param header redirect); use CGI::Simple::Standard qw(Vars param header redirect);

    --
    perl -MO=Deparse -e"u j t S n a t o e h r , e p l r a h k c r e"

      Very interesting: CGI::Simple states to be faster than CGI. So either this claim is not true or there is something else: perhaps CGI is preloaded by the server and CGI::Simple needs to be loaded again and again at the start of the script? If I have some time to spare during the next weekend, I might try some tests myself.

      Update: I now only see that you are using the functional interface to CGI::Simple (i.e. CGI::Simple::Standard) and that the claims to be faster only relate to the OO-interface.
