in thread FastCGi on IIS... The tale of Microsoft and my new Perl Module...

Things may have changed, but I know that a few years back when I needed to run some perl stuff on an existing IIS server and went looking for a FastCGI plugin, there was nothing available. I asked around and found only a few incomplete personal projects. So, given that PerlEx is no longer available, I think this is a big deal for people stuck on IIS.

    Why another fastcgi module? FCGI is working perfectly on windows (with the new fastcgi implementation for iis 5 and 6). You can't just pick a random cgi script and expect it to work with fastcgi - it's not possible. Apache::Registry was designed to do this, it has been improved for years and it still has some special cases.

    BTW, PerlEx is available and comes bundled with the ActivePerl disto. PerlEx is now free as ActivePerl.

    BTW2, if you are going to use fastcgi on windows make sure to compile your own perl with ITHREADS disabled. They are useless with fastcgi and you will gain about 20% boost in performance. ActivePerl has ITHREADS enabled.
      I think PerlEx is no longer maintained.

[Corion]: Hi choroba! I'm somewhat fond of this picture - I think it is Breaking Bad-style even though I haven't watched the series at all ;)
[Corion]: Hmmm - and now that I look at it, the gallery I'm using doesn't produce non-Javascript compatible links in the sense that hotlinking to an image will only work for Javascript enabled...
[Corion]: On the other hand, maybe supporting non-Javascript isn't that much a priority, and I'm not exactly sure how I could make it work for both kinds of browsers without server-side magic
[Corion]: Should I ever come across far too much money, this would become my evil maniac lair ;)
