I'm still struggling with trying to understand how Mod_Perl 2 works.  All I want to do is to have a regular Perl script run under Mod_Perl just to speed it up.


In the past, in Mod_Perl 1 I’ve used this:


sub PrintHeader




                        print "Content-type: text/html\r\n\r\n";




            my $r = Apache->request;






I then read the documentation where it says:


Apache->request has been replaced with Apache2::RequestUtil::request( ). 


There is also some other documentation in that section that I don’t quite understand.  In testing and messing around with this in Mod_Perl 2 I’ve noticed that the simple


print "Content-type: text/html\r\n\r\n";


just works.  My Apache configuration looks like this:


<Directory C:\Apache2\Apache2\htdocs\develop>

            Options ExecCGI

            AddHandler cgi-script .pl

            AddHandler cgi-script .cgi


#For ModPerl Only

            <IfModule mod_perl.c>

            <Files ~ (\.pl)>

                        SetHandler perl-script

                        PerlResponseHandler ModPerl::Registry

                        Options ExecCGI

                        allow from all

                        PerlOptions +ParseHeaders





I’m thrilled if:


print "Content-type: text/html\r\n\r\n";


just works.  But I want to make sure I understand it and that it is OK before releasing this.


I’m just using ModPerl::Registry to speed regular Perl CGI scripts up.  The code needs to work with regular CGI, Mod_Perl 1, Mod_Perl 1.99, and Mod_Perl 2.


And by the way $ENV{'PERL_SEND_HEADER'} does not seem to exist any more.  Is this not available in Mod_Perl 2? 

How do detect:


PerlOptions -ParseHeaders?


Thanks for your help,
