You should look for mod_perl as I believe that the imdb is using mod_perl.
With mod_perl you aren't starting up a new perl process every time; in
fact you never start a perl process.  Furthermore, you only end up compiling
each perl program into memory once for each child--unless the perl script
changes, at which time mod_perl reparses it. :)

This may be what you want.  But as far as I can tell, there are no CGI
scripts that I have ever written that are static.  The very nature that
I write CGI scripts is to let me build dynamic-html.
