CGI_Lite vs. CGI::Simple

in thread lighter alternative to CGI.pm

I just tested it, and for the very minor use that I'm putting it to CGI::Simple is actually slower than CGI.pm. I'm a little bit boggled by this result, but I guess it's just a matter of the particular functions I'm using. CGI_Lite, on the other hand, gives about a 60% speed increase in the overall execution time of the script.

    I would like to see your code as all the testing I did showed that CGI::Simple was quite a bit faster than CGI across the board. I too am boggled.

    cheers

      All it does is load CGI_Lite and parse cookies. Nothing else.

        If that's all you need why not call CGI::Cookie or CGI::Simple::Cookie directly? You don't need to call CGI/CGI::Simple at all as these modules have their own APIs....

        use CGI::Cookie; use Data::Dumper; my %cookies = fetch CGI::Cookie; print "Content-type: text/html\n\n", Dumper \%cookies;

        cheers
