Teach! I've heard this comment about CGI before, but not sure what the downsides of CGI are (I use it in all my scripts accepting user form input). Enlighten, please. Thanks.

    Perl in a CGI environment usually means that the perl interpreters is started on each request. This isn't very efficient.

    mod_perl has a persistent perl environment available to serve the request which means there is no overhead for creating a process, compiling the code etc.
