CGI.pm vs Apache::Request

by Henri Icarus (Beadle)
on Jun 22, 2005 at 00:10 UTC ( #468868=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Henri Icarus has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm diving in to convert my CGI based web app to mod_perl and I've read the porting guide over at perl.apache.org but I'm confused about how inter-operable CGI.pm is with Apache::Request. Specifically, it doesn't look like such methods as "delete" and "delete_all" are available in Apache::Request.

Any advice from those who have converted over and how they've handled this issue?

Thanks!

    CGI.pm works perfect with mod_perl. You don't need to move to Apache::Request.
      I understand that CGI.pm works, I'm trying to get the speed and memory use gains that come with Apache::Request. Thus the need to upgrade.

    Im new to Apache::Request myself, so take this with a pinch of salt...

    Have you looked at Apache::Table? It provides similar functionality:

    my $q = Apache::Request->new(shift); my $table = $q->parms; $table->clear;

    You could create an Apache::Request subclass with CGI.pm's full API, eg

    package CGIRequest; use base Apache::Request; sub new { my $class = shift; return bless Apache::Request->new(@_), $class; } sub delete_all { my $self = shift; $self->parms()->clear(); } # ...etc 1;

    A quick test of the above code appears to be ok...

    Hope that helps
