Subject Re: goals for 2.03-dev?
Date Fri, 05 Dec 2003 17:42:44 GMT

I'd like to have parts of CGI ported to apreq.
I like to use CGI to generate HTML.
I think using CGI in mod_perl/apreq CGI consumes to much memory.
Also a lot of the code of CGI can be implemented in C with less memory
usage. May be something like Apache::CGI...

The second suggestion is to handle different encodings.
Apreq should support the UTF-8 flag of Perl.
This will help on unicode input from browsers.
