in reply to Re^3: A Perl Daemon
in thread A Perl Daemon

What was meant by "getting rid of Apache" was in reference to merlyn's response.

The fact of the matter is that I have many different processes, that are not Apache, that come up on their own and use BigModuleTree.pm to do their work. I really like mod_perl and the way it handles things except for it's forking behavior. So a "standalone" mod_perl was the metaphor I was using to describe this perld idea.

I still plan on using Apache to run the CGI's I have to run (with or without perld). I still plan on using mod_perl where ever I can (when not forking a bunch) but when not in Apache I would like to have something that could speed-up execution like mod_perl does. And since mod_perl accomplishes a lot of it's speed by being persistent... I thought, well why not a sort-of Apache divorced generalized mod_perl? That is where the idea started.
