abcperl5 has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I need to find out if Perl CGI can be made to run persistently on Windows 2008 with IIS 7.5.
By "persistently", I mean that the Perl CGI script is interpreted once, then serves multiple HTTP requests in a row, while preserving in-memory data between requests (i.e., allowing for massive performance gains).
If this can be done, I will gladly pay $500 cash to the first person who can show me how. Showing me will consist of 1.) replying with some explanation of how _you_personally_ have gotten it to work and then 2.) I will give you an RDP login to a W2008 server and you will set it up.
Lots of technologies have promised persistent Perl CGI on Windows -- PerlEx, Perl ISAPI, FastCGI -- but none of them actually work (per my extensive online research & testing). Perhaps my problem is that the true experts who know how to do this aren't the ones writing newbie online tutorials and participating in forums... thus my $500 offer. I would really appreciate it if somebody could illustrate if/how this can be done.
