in reply to no webserver(apache)? no problem! test .cgi with Plack/plackup

++ I'm commenting mostly just to bump this excellent piece of advice.

Since port is rarely important and I like to use this idiom in addition to running a traditional webserver on port 80, I'd shorten it to use the default port 5000–

plackup -L Shotgun -MPlack::App::WrapCGI -e "Plack::App::WrapCGI->new(script => shift)" [cgi]

–which lends itself to an alias–

alias pcgi='plackup -Ilib -L Shotgun -MPlack::App::WrapCGI -e "Plack:: +App::WrapCGI->new(script => shift)"'

Update: anonymous monk that replied is quite correct. The code, as is, is broken.

Update: And a million years later... alias works in bash, at least.

alias pcgi='plackup -L Shotgun -MPlack::App::WrapCGI -e "Plack::App::W +rapCGI->new(script => \$ARGV[0])"' pcgi some.cgi HTTP::Server::PSGI: Accepting connections at http://0:5000/ ...

    FWIW, that doesn't work for me
    Magic number checking on storable string failed at blib\lib\Storable.p +m (autosplit into blib\lib\auto\Storable\ line 421, at c:/per +l/site/5.12.2/lib/Plack/Loader/ line 25
    $ pmvers Plack Storable Plack: 0.9976 Storable: 2.25
    It has to do with string-eval and @ARGV being emptied
