Me too. I didn't get an answer (that I saw) when I asked for a pointer
a couple of days back. I went to the author's pages but didn't find it,
and Alta Vista's update-to-date'ness has slipped a bit so, no luck there

All my CGI is in perl :-)   and the scripts are pretty big 1000-2000
lines each. One thing I already do is pre-process the "requires" lines
of my scripts so that the stuff in the script dirs already has the
require'd modules embedded in the main file... saves me ~10 file open/reads
per CGI call.
