ISAPI Perl is a useful Win32 performance enhancement compared to plain CGI/Perl. To summarize, the following major points were covered in this tutorial:

  • ISAPI Perl vs. CGI/Perl
    • CGI was the first protocol
    • ISAPI gave a performance boost
  • Configuring a Web Server for ISAPI Perl
    • Fairly straightforward, just use the installer
    • Win98 ISAPI installation may require tweaking
    • Consider enabling taint mode
  • Using CGI Scripts under ISAPI Perl
    • Getting ISAPI Perl to be associated with a Perl script
    • Get IIS to recognize the current working directory using the chdir() command or setting up an IIS virtual root
