I feel your pain since we do a lot of CGI where I work. It's fast and easy and I really don't have any complaints about it.

An alternative to most of the CGI input parts would be CGI::Simple. It will give you params() and such just like CGI.pm did ... if you don't want to install CGI.pm yourself.

For the output parts, there's HTML::Tiny. I haven't tried it but it's there if you want something like that.

FWIW, I've looked at some of the PSGI frameworks and all the examples I've seen are pretty small and have so much overhead I don't see the advantage of them. I suppose I'd need to find more than "tutorial examples" to see what they really offer. Back in time, someone here created a few pages with Mojolicious and they are a real pain to maintain and seem to have a lot of "black magic" compared to CGI, creating a negative impression IMHO. In fact, we'll probably end up ripping out Mojolicious and converting those pages to CGI to simplify our software code base.
