Subject Re: how to install Embperl with Apache2
Date Mon, 03 Feb 2003 17:19:23 GMT
hi Randy,

thanks for the reply regarding embperl + apache2 + mod_perl2 installation.

i used embperl on linux years ago. i still remember the pain to search
everywhere and install all the stuff to complete embperl installation. is it
possible to provide "binary plugin" of embperl per most recen release of
Win32 apache+mod_perl to benefit all those new comers who would like to try
such a beautiful server-scripting tool like embperl? building from source
and tedious module search makes massive installation impossible, thus hinder
its popularity and commercial value.

Best Regards,

Peter Pan
