Hi...I have a related question...

I deal with many cgi scripts that must perform time consuming processes, I'm looking for a framework or module that handle cleanly what I'm cobbling together manually.

To prevent timeouts, currently I write a CGI::Session id, fork a child, send the browser a session cookie and page with a meta refresh on it. The browser refreshes, sending the id, until the child query is done.

Second I also use Memoize to store responses to certain time consuming sql queries, and a few subroutine calls.

I can only cache for about an hour to keep things fresh however. So I have to do a fair amount of work to accomplish that (normalize functions, and deleting stale data), I also had to modify the source to use the locking version of storable calls so multiple processes can use the cache file.

Third I make extensive use of expires and cache-control headers etc, but often requests are different enough that the script still has to be hit.

Basically I just want to have a framework that handles the above, without having to roll so much of my own.

any suggestions? thanks

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
