And now that I think about it a bit more... If all you're using the CGI object for is to get the remote user name, why not just use:
instead? That will return the user name typed in for Basic authentication. You can also get the password from:
($ret,$pw) = $r->get_basic_auth_pw().

    Thanks for the $r->connection->user(); It worked!

    I had searched through, etc. looking for such a thing. Is there a better write-up somewhere? (Before you answer, I own "Programming Apache Modules with Perl" but just haven't read it yet!)

        That's actually the real name of the book I have. It's at home so I didn't remember the correct name.

        I also got lucky enough to pick up a Draft Manuscript of "Network Programming with Perl" (Yet another new Lincoln S. book) at the LISA in New Orleans last December ;-) (freebie from the publisher).
