Nope. I wanna see if what I'm saying is useful to people. And one way to do that more-or-less transparently is to know how many people clicked on a link, which my /cgi/go framework will tell me.

Of course, it's been a long time since that URL actually fired off a separate process on my server: it's now a nice mod_perl handler very early in the Trans phase, but the URL is mnemonic enough that I stayed with it. {grin}

For more details on what /cgi/go is and how to code it, see my WT column where I introduced it to my site.

    When I saw the title for this node, my first thought was:

    You should use /cgi/g instead, the /o is pointless when the regex is constant.

    I love it, but are you sure that this isn't the link to it? :)

    Hmm, had to hard code the link - the [ ] regex doesn't like it

    $ perldoc perldoc
