Finally, the most important thing is the Apache-Perl API, which allows you
to do anything with a received request, even intervene in every stage of
request processing. This gives you great flexibility and lets you create things
you couldn’t dream about with plain mod_cgi.
There are many more things to learn about mod_perl and web programming in
general. In future articles I’ll talk in details about all these issues.
Many thanks to Eric Cholet for reviewing this article.
