Subject a better apachectl?
Date Fri, 05 Jun 2009 21:21:08 GMT
Over the years I've developed (as I'm sure many have :)) a small home- 
grown replacement for apachectl, to make start/stop/restart easier.  
It's in library form, and among other things it

* detects whether the server is actually running, by contacting the port
* waits to make sure the server starts properly, and shows the error  
logs if it fails
* detects and removes out-of-date files

Now's the perfect time to ask, is there something out there like this?  
If not, does this seem useful for CPAN, as, say, Server::Control?
