NAME Net::FastCGI - FastCGI Toolkit DESCRIPTION This distribution aims to provide a complete API for working with the FastCGI protocol. The primary goal is to provide a function oriented and object oriented API which are not tied to a specific I/O model or framework. Secondary goal is to provide higher level tools/API which can be used for debugging and interoperability testing. PROGRESS The function oriented API is considered feature complete. Net::FastCGI::Protocol provides functions to build and parse all FastCGI v1.0 messages, also provided is a few convenient higher level functions such as "build_begin_request()", "build_end_request()", "parse_record()" and "dump_record()". Work has begun on object oriented implementation and a simple blocking I/O class which is intended for testing and debugging. PACKAGES Net::FastCGI::Constant FastCGI protocol constants. Net::FastCGI::IO Provides functions to read and write FastCGI messages. Net::FastCGI::Protocol Provides functions to build and parse FastCGI messages. ENVIRONMENT Environment variable "NET_FASTCGI_PP" can be set to a true value before loading this package to disable usage of XS implementation. PREREQUISITES Run-Time perl 5.6 or greater.
