in thread use CGI or die;

Using CGI to handle the logistics of server interaction and using it to produce your output are two very different things. I use it nearly exclusively for the former but almost never for the latter.

    Good point but what do you use then to generate output ? Hand cut code, a module that does a more reasonable job than CGI or a full blown framework (in which case does it not parse the CGI for you anyway)? I realise this node is a little old so perhaps everyone has moved on to Maypole or similar by now but I am currently building my first web interface in a few years so I am browsing around for clues.

      For output, I use a templating system.
