So I'm working with mod_perl. It is blazing fast! HTML pages are consistently generated in 10 to 20 ms even immediately after a server restart. Total page generation time is under 200 ms with jQuery mobile.
In order to accomplish this, I've preloaded all the modules in my startup.pl file. However, one module that doesn't seem to preload is Data::Dumper. Even though it's in my startup file, I still have to do use Data::Dumper qw (Dumper) in each of my modules to be able to use it. Even if I do use Data::Dumper qw(Dumper) in my startup file, it still has no effect. I'm not sure why this is, though. Anyone know?
