Well, perhaps we would love to someday receive some follow-up as to exactly how it helped!   (“War Stories™” are always informative.)   Very glad that PM was able to help you.

    I'm happy to say that I over-estimated the amount and nature changes in how Perl interacts with web servers.

    Specifically the most useful thing to know was that CGI::Fast supplements CGI. So once the script is up and running and in contact with the server, the familiar CGI module can be used. Once I got over that hump it was all good again. In some of the reading it was important to know to import the CGI::Fast first and CGI second so that if there is any colision, CGI wins.

      CGI::Fast first and CGI second so that if there is any colision, CGI wins.

      Unless you have a library conflict with broken installs which is actually pretty hard to manage (some things installed in one place and related others at a different version installed in another place). This is not an issue and you should not even load CGI because it is misleading. CGI::Fast has already done it internally. And it's backwards. First loaded, where code overlaps, wins, not second. (Update: to clarify, I mean code packages. Once loaded, they aren't reloaded without gymnastics.)

      From the CGI::Fast POD (and code, POD can lie) – CGI::Fast is a subclass of the CGI object created by CGI.pm.
