Subject Re: syntax vs. style
Date Mon, 27 Mar 2006 13:08:38 GMT
Instead of using MP2 syntax, etc, we're still using:

    print "Content-type: $type\n\n";
    print "blah";

and in sending redirects, we use stuff like:

    print "Location: $url\n\n";

Is this a problem or is it just bad style?

What reasons are there to continue our port to use  the correct response
handler syntax, etc?

It's slightly slower. Effectively those headers have to be re-parsed by 
Apache::Registry. Another example is that $r->print is faster than a plain 

Although Apache::Registry gives a good speed boost by itself, you need to 
make use of the mod_perl API to actually get the best out of it.

The next step from there is not using Apache::Registry at all, but putting 
mod_perl handlers into their own modules/packages. However there's more of a 
change here to other ways of working - for example you need to restart 
server to introduce code changes.
