in reply to CGI versus CGI::* modules

So my questions are: how many people still depend on CGI? How many have moved to using the other modules, and have you found that worthwhile? What are the best CGI::* modules to use that replace the functions of CGI?

As I've never used for output, I'm perfectly happy with CGI::Simple these days. I've found that it lives up to its claim and really is a drop-in replacement. (Thanks tachyon!)

And which are the ones that can generate XHTML compliant code?

I wouldn't look to the CGI:: modules for that. Consider using templates and generating your own XHTML compliant output.
