( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

My coworkers have not used Perl. They are not biased against it, but they do have many of the common misconceptions. However, we recently found ourselves in a situation where for our new document management system, hosted on Apache+JBoss, we needed a way to handle file downloads. I was told that this had to be implemented with a Servlet in JBoss because the access control system required calling some database procedures, but there was much fretting over the use of a servlet for the actual file downloads because some of the files are big.

So I said, "well, why not let Apache handle the downloads." And they said, "well what about access control." So I said, "why not write a mod_perl authentication handler for the access check and an output filter to deal with the fact that the files are locally encrypted" and they were intrigued. Now, of course, the challenge is that I need to give them some actual code :)

    [Discipulus]: new $workstation is arrived: SSD 250, sata 1TB, 16G RAM, only i5 CPU.. seems a good one: guess what first user installation will be?
    [Corion]: Discipulus: Notepad++, or Perl ;)
    [marto]: xubuntu or lubuntu
    [Corion]: :-D
    [marto]: my desktop is a core2 duo, 120GB SSD, 4GB RAM, boots to (GUI) login in less than 10 seconds from cold start
    [Discipulus]: mah, winbuntu 10...
    [marto]: whent he boys start school I'll build myself as new machine, ryzen based
    [Corion]: marto: That's cool! I think my (home) desktop spends 30 seconds in the BIOS...
    [Corion]: marto: Heh - currently they seem promising, but I think I'll stay with nVidia+Intel for the time being, as I've been bitten too often by bad AMD drivers
    Discipulus is (still?) not a big fan of notepad++
